How do I lock in a font size for all viewing

I created a website that looked great on my laptop, my house desktop, my Blackberry and even my Kindle. But the guy that I made it for has his internet browsers set at font size 18 so it looks horrible. I didn't realize that my computers are all set at 14.  I'm assuming that my phone and Kindle are set at 14 as well since everything lined up right. So I went back and set my internet browser at 18 and redid the pages to match.

My question is how do I create pages with universal size fonts so that this doesn't happen and so that I don't have to change my font sizes everytime I work on this particular site?  It looks so tiny when I change back to 14!


Thank you!

    One issue to clear up might be the redundant styling of text through CSS and through HTML. If you are defining size in CSS, there is little need to also define a -1 font size in the HTML.


    You might experiment with alternate measures of font size in the CSS. There is more than just 'px'.
