It might not support 4pt fonts but might support 3pt fonts.  If it is
using bitmapped fonts, it might not even support 12.5pt fonts, even though
it can do 8pt fonts.

In any case, one should not be using absolute units, like points, in 
page designs.  If one does, you should expect users to reject fonts
below 20pt or maybe even larger, if they are given the ability to set 
a font size floor, and have poor vision.
