I use two stylesheets at the moment, one for mac and the other for pc. I've
found that an increase of 2 point sizes on the mac gives acceptable results for
readability and keeping the design the same across both platforms. The downside
is that there has to be some JavaScript there to dynamically create the link to
the appropriate stylesheet. Somewhat inelegant, but I'd rather have that than
text that's unreadable.
