HTML font size in percentages

It sounds like the HTML tags are setting the size for runs of text in the field, so you can’t just set the textSize of the field?

Are there varying sizes of text runs in the field? Could you set the textSize of the char 1 to -1 of the field to empty, then set it for the whole field? In one project I’ve implemented a feature similar to what Bob was talking about where I increment the textSize of the field by 1 point using Cmd/Cntl + or -.

I have a field whose HTMLtext is set to a heavily tagged HTML file that changes the font size repeatedly. We want to allow the user to adjust the size of the text. The easiest way would be to use percentages for the font sizes so that changing the field's textsize would change the markup proportionally, but LC fields don't seem to support that. Is there a trick or do I need to do a series of replacements? I'm afraid that will be too slow, there's a lot of text.
