    If your asking what the main font size I use on my web pages, the answer is 12px.

    We also use 12.
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
    to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
    isn't and die to find out there is.

    It would depend on the font type, but in most cases size 12 is indeed the best size to go with.

    Here's a good article on the topic: Select Easy-To-Read Fonts.

    Another question
    Does anyone know how to make your ads stay still when a user changes their text settings, I've looked at a few sites and played with the text-size option, and their ads stayed in position. When I do mine they shoot off all over the place, I coded my site from scratch, and have only been doing xhtml and css for three months. Am I missing something?

    Try opening their page in Firefox, and then looking at it in view source. If you have the Web developer toolbar you can manipulate their CSS and see what makes it tick. You can also see the URL of their stylesheet and plug that into a browser. Study that stylesheet because every trick they have is right there.

    In FF I use normal and in IE I use medium. In both cases they are html size 2, or 10 point. This is also the standard I use on the website, however, our product descriptions use a smaller font.
    Also, font face effects size. We've standardized on Arial.

    Here are some techniques for maintaining width...
    Resist using nowrap in table cells
    Set desired sizes in your table attributes
    Alternatively use transparent 1X[choose width] gifs together with setting small table sizes/percentages for formatting. The table/cell will fit the width of the gif as long as the table/cell size is set smaller than the gif.

    Vertically there's not much you can do to keep the table from growing when browser font size is changed.
