    On our webpage we have RadEditor control. RadEditor contains RealFontSize dropdown.
    Problem:

    <td align="center" style="width: 98%;"><img alt="" style="border: 0px solid;" src="/Images/1fc47641-aa90-466b-bcab-1df6b0a0bf5d.gif" />                    <span style="font-family: arial black; font-size: 18px;"><br />
                <br />
                Company Name </span></td>

    Browser: IE 8
    1. User selects text "Name"
    Text in fontsize dropdown - "4"
    2.User changes font size to 18px.
    Text in dropdown changes to 18px.

    In lower rows of that table there is different problem. I select text in a cell - fontsize combo says "2". I'm changing the value - font size changes, the value in combo remains the same ("2").  But what's more interesting - when i select text in more than one cell - the fontsize combo shows value in points (!) - 9pt. When i change the value - fontsize changes, the text value of combo stays the same. In FF4 it acts a little better. We would like to have one type of measure unit. It's not so important to have in every browser the same unit. In FF we have pixels and it's ok. But we can't have 3 types of units in IE8, because it's confusing for our clients. I can deliver html content of radeditor if that's necessary.

    Hello TERRY,

    I suggest you to use the RealFontSize tool instead the FontSize one. You can find more information on both tools in the following online help articles: Font Sizes, Real Font Sizes

    I will be glad to answer all your further questions after you review the articles.

    Kind regards,

    I have read those articles before i decided to ask here. We are using RealFontSize tool and we have exactly the same problems on IE. Maybe it's fault of way we defined table's html structure displayed inside radeditor. It looks pretty normal to us. The point is we would like to have one type of font unit on IE inside radeditor. if you need we can provide you with the sample html from our radeditor that is displayed in undesired fashion.
