           Summary: Wrong font size calculated on google.com
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.google.com/
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: me at jasonclinton.com

Some pages have different font sizes than are expected. For example, go to
Google's home page, right click "Advertising Programs", click Inspect Element.
Click Computed Style -> Show Inherited. In Epiphany/Webkit font-size value is
15px. In Google Chrome, it's 13px. Firefox agrees with Chrome. This breaks some
UI's that rely on lots of text flowing in a particular way; in rare instances,
GMail, for example.

In the Google home page example, one level up from the <a> element is a <font>
tag with size="-1". There is where the inherited value of 13px should come

Changing the desktop DPI to force 96 DPI can help get the value closer to the
correct value in Epiphany/Webkit but it is still not quite correct.
