I'd like to gently request that we limit the discussion to the topic
at hand, namely the defintion and use of 'font-size-adjust: auto'. 
Discussions of which browser sucks less for font configuration is
probably a topic best discussed elsewhere.

In essence true, but then users that have this problem are likely to have
it with all major browsers.

If all available user agents aren't configurabl for them, then there is an
implicit requirement that they do have to suffer such impediments.

At the moment are trying to find better ways of controlling fonts in IE,
Firefox and Chrome on Windows.

The issue is that users that have this problem, have no alternative
browsers to choose.

If we look back at the history of web browser development, user agents have
become more entrenched in their paradigms, less flexible, and less
supportive of minority and lesser used languages.
