    Here's what I mean about font size selection varying between browsers...

    Re: Font sizes

    The code is the same on our end, so, I think it might be Chrome rendering the sizes incorrectly. Do you see size differences in posts for 1, 2 and 3 size text? Try making a reply using different sizes and see if they render okay, or, if all the smaller ones appear the same size.

    And in Chrome, those three lines all appear in the different sizes okay for you? Or are they all the same size, like in the drop down menu?

    Re: Font sizes

    Okay, so globally for Chrome, all text of sizes 1, 2 and 3 appear in the same, default font size. It's not just the drop down menu.

    What we need is other people with Chrome to say whether they see the sizes of the lines in post #3 correctly, or if they are all the same size.

    Maybe there is a font size config setting that is causing a minimum size to be used, or some other font setting issue.

    For what is worth, I'm running Chromium 18.0.1006.0 (Developer Build 117433 Windows).

    This is with different sizes:

    Size 1

    Size 2

    Size 3

    Re: Font sizes

    I'll look into that some more, Mike, if no other Chrome users are seeing the same identical font sizes with 1, 2 & 3.
    Thank you for your assistance! :thumb:

    What I see in the last 2 poster's submissions are three numbers of equal size.
    Is that what you guys are seeing?
    Screen shots or verbal descriptions are the only way to clarify what is being seen.

    Here is a good example of what I am seeing... the first three sizes (1,2 & 3) are all the same size. The rest vary.... as seen in the attached screenie.

    Also, for me in Chrome, a signature that was entered as font size 1 displays at the same size as the rest of the post.

    I understand now what you mean, it's pretty weird, have you changed anything in Options/Under the Hood/Web Content? (the attachment shows how I see those lines on my computer.

    @ HungryMan... thanks a million for posting your configuration.
    Because of it, I discovered the setting that was causing me to see the 1st three font sizes as all the same size. It's kind of embarrassing, or at least should have been quite evident to me on a glance. :oops:
    My minimum font size was set to 13.
    Changing it to Tiny fixed me up. :thumb:
