This is the one thing that drives me insane, FONT SIZE, i was using size 12 and 14 in an email and it looked perfect on my screen and when i sent it, and my uncle got it at the other end on his Windows Outlook he said it was that small a magnify glass would be useless. So i tried size 22 and he says its readable but could be a size bigger, so i tried 24 and he said it was too big. When he sends emails to me he uses size 14 on windows which shows up as size 19 on Mac, if i use size 19 on mac its too small on Windows. Yesterday i went to print out something i typed in Text Edit, i used size 12 it looked fine on the screen but when i printed it was so small you couldn't make out the letters i ended up using size 34 or 36.

any ideas here?

Maybe it's your Uncle's PC resolution settings. I have no problems with sending e-mails using the default fonts of Mail and Entourage to any PC users.

His font size comes fine to me. His resolution would be for a widescreen 22" where i'm using a 20". He never had problems from my 19" widescreen PC.

I purchased Microsoft Office:Mac 2008 and now the fonts are bigger when the receiver gets email. Meaning i used size 14 and then it becomes size 20 for receiver using Office 07 for windows, this is weird. Should I contact Apple and/or Microsoft on this?
