In the css of the same webpage I referred to in the previous post,

https://files.nyu.edu/emf202/public/fr/limericks.html

I specify

font-family: "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Grande", sans-serif;

When, however, instead of

<html>

I specify:

<html lang="el">

the font is rendered different in size. I would think that in both cases
the font should appear exactly the same. What is going on?

In case it is significant. I am using Firefox 20.

Thanks,

emf
