I am having an issue with IE7 and the Japanese font MS PGothic. On
Windows XP, IE 7 displays the font about 2-3 pixels larger than any

Font size varies depending on the user's settings, and your design
should account for that. What you described is not a problem.
Well, I am not the designer of the site and on most of the site, it is
not effecting the layout. But you are missing the point. I am doing
the testing and I am the user right now. The same font at the same
size is almost 5 pixels different in the same browser on 2 different
operating systems. A header that is at 16px, looks 14px in MS Vista
and 18px in XP. Normal body copy font's at 10px are readable on all
browser except vista because it makes the font look 8px. 8px Japanese
fonts are almost illegible. That's not a problem for you, but it is
for me, the designer and the customer that is paying well into the six
figures for the site.
The site is broken down into 2 languages. The English site is sweet.
The fonts look great. It's the Japanese font MS PGothic that is giving
me the headaches. Has anyone here ever worked on a Japanese site
