Web pages should not contain "<<font size=???>" at all.


First, if you want to do anything in that direction, please

use CSS. Second, you should only use that if you want to

indicated that something is smaller (or bigger) than normal.

Using size=2 for the whole page is complete nonsense, except

for e.g. a "small print" page of some contract.


Please don't try to interpolate "Good usage of HTML in e-mail"

based on bad usage of HTML on web pages.
