I'm sorry, for reason I can't remember I didn't check the stylesheet
to see how you'd made it small.

My point is still that if I wanted websites in general to use small
text because it looks better (and  I agree with those who say it does)
then I should set my browser to render all websites small. If on the
other hand I have poor eyesight and have set my browser to render all
pages with a larger font - then the wiki will look small(er) to me,
forcing me to make a change every time I visit so the wiki uses the
size I prefer. But it's a relative size and that's the main thing.

I don't see much difference between em and named, except I think there
are more steps available using em units.
