Please note that I do not have a problem here. The issue is wheter things will work the same way on other systems.
Or did you reply to some other of my recent questions? (Like the flickering issue in IE?)
If using that doctype I posted is the magic bullet to override IE settings, well then that is good to know!
Can't say for certain what impact the DOCTYPE has on performance. A long time ago I posted a query about DOCTYPEs and what impact they had on the performance of ebooks. Never received a definitive answer, but found on one occasion removing the DT did resolve an issue--so try it as needed.
As for font size setting in IE not effecting ebooks appears to be true. However, I've found the opposite not true. That is when font size is changed with Activ's controls and closed the new size carries over to IE.
Don't have much to add to this thread, as I try not to dwell on the issues I can't control; if any user settings limit the ebook behavior, it will also limit the browser befhavior as well, and that's the choice of the user. If they change the text size because their vision is poor, so be it.
Java on the other hand.... I don't have any java applets or servlets (or whatever) to run in my eBooks.
I think if you're planning on going this high tech (using Java) you should just include a link to Sun's website so the reader can download and install the latest version of Java if not installed already.
