The site http://www.pilot-link.org/
is using an external css file in which the font size is fixed.
When I mailed him, he seemed confident that his was a good site,
asking for feedback.

In the css file he has

body {
	font-size:		10px;
	font-family:		verdana, helvetica, sans-serif;

I.e. he's fixed everything at 10 pixels font size, which I find
uncomfortably small.

Quite rigid, doesn't allow me to increase it for my own needs.
 I think with IE6 on board, the only way I can overcome his
font size is by using my own CSS in the cascade?

How can I persuade him that its not a good idea please?

Regards DaveP.
