I'm not sure how to describe this so I've attached a screen shot of the same file in Firefox and Amaya with the default zoom/font-size in both.

The three lines are:
 - Font-size: 12pt
 - No font-size specified (i.e. how text appears by default)
 - Font-size: 11pt

As you can see, the default setting in Amaya seems to match how it displays 12pt text but as you can see from the Firefox window, it's a lot smaller than how other applications display 12pt text.
