    IE displays fonts way too big

    I'm pretty much a CSS newbie, so please bear with me. I just switched (most) of my font tags to CSS, and now IE gives me a huge font that makes my pages too wide for a 800 or ever 1024 width screen. Could someone take a peak at the source code of http://lyricslist.com and see why IE makes the letters so big? Opera and Firefox are making the page nice, from what I can see. If anyone can confirm that it looks good in Firefox, Safari (I don't have access to a mac) and Opera, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks, guys! I Always appreciate you!

    There is no difference...
    Note: I do not test code. I just write it off the top of my head. There might be bugs in it! But if any thing I gave you the overall theory of what you need to accomplish. Also there are plenty of other ways to accomplish this same thing. I just gave one example of it. Other ways might be faster and more efficient.

    Yeah it looks fine in all three of my browsers too.

    I have a hunch that IE is overriding the style and making the text a lot bigger. Check on your preferences and make sure that they use the default settings in the css file and do not resize it.

    I'm sure it's fine, I have fFireFox set to display un styled fonts much smaller than default, though.
