Font-size-adjust

Attempt to normalise the font size. This CSS property was a not entirely successful attempt to render two or more fonts so they would appear to be the same size. The adjustment is based on the fonts aspect ratio (a far from perfect measure for this purpose). In CSS 3 it no longer has to use the aspect value of the first font-family.

Examples:
h1 { font-size-adjust: 0.5; }
#ss64id { font-size-adjust: 0.45
; }
.ss64class { font-size-adjust: 0.62; }

Try it:

Sans-Serif: A greater difference in legibility can be found within members of the same type family than between a serif and a sans-serif typeface.

Serif: Factors such as x-height, counter size, letter spacing and stroke width will affect readability.
