For webdesign it would be nice to instantly be able to select 16pt in the font size dropdown, I will send you a cake.

Howdy Pascal,

How frequently do web designers use 16 pt as a font size? Is this a common problem?

Red velvet with custard filling works for me...8-)

Thanks,
David

Pretty often, since it's (more or less) the default browser font size these days.

Oh lordy, I remember I had red velvet once.. Deal ;)

16pt has slowly become the standard size due to larger screens (and legibility on smaller ones like phones) it's the most common size in most html frameworks nowadays, so it's standard in mockups as well :)
