www-html is a mailing list for discussing the development /of/
(X)HTML, not for HOWTO questions about using it. You should try more
appropriate groups such as comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html,
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets and comp.lang.javascript on
Usenet.

HTML is not a presentation language, it isn't for describing font size
and the like. CSS is closer to what you want. However, CSS doesn't
have any facility to reduce font size to fit. That might be possible
with JavaScript.
