CSS IE font-size:inherit Problem Fixed - Font-Size Inherit Not Working?

This is posted so I don't forget how to fix the friggin problem in Internet Explorer: font-size:inherit

In IE, font-size:inherit doesn't seem to work. I usually use Firefox or Chrome, so I was shocked to see some text that wasn't "proper" on one of my sites. It seems as if font-size:inherit doesn't work with Internet Explorer so to get around that, simply use:

font-size: 1em; 

Simple fix, eh?

IE font-size:inherit not working?

use font-size: 1em; instead
