well, why not 
 body { font-size: 1em}

at the same time, I have checked what default definition Konqueror 
(www.konqueror.org) has.
body {
	display: block;
	padding: 5px;
	line-height: 1.05;
As you see, there is no default font size.

at the same time,
H1 { 
	display: block;
	font-size: 2em;
	margin: .67em auto;
	font-weight: bolder;

Why body doesn't have default font-size?
Because default (minimal) font size is defined in Browser settings 
For example, I have min. font size, which is "auto-applied" to <body> 
element, set to 8pt.
Than font size for <H1> is calculated as 2x8pt=16pt.
This also simplifies implementation for "Font Enlarge" button/method for the 
HTML page.
