You can't really control the size of the text on someone elses computer. They have adjusted their browser to their likes.

You can attempt to do it by forcing fonts to be a certain pixel size, but this usually leads to a poorer rendition of the pages.

The best you can do is to size your text with CSS and use the "em" measurement.

1 em = 100% of the size the normal text as set by your user.
1.2 em = 120% etc.

By using the em measurement each of your users sees the importance of your text and headings based on their own personal preferences, thus not "damaging" your presentation.
