The whole point of HTML is that there is no guarantee that a page will
look remotely similar on any two platforms at all.  Indeed, that a page
I create will be able to adapt to many different situations is why I use
HTML and not, for example, MS Word.  The issues you raise should be
dealt with via style sheets if at all.
