The font is specified as Arial, sans-serif. This means that the
browser will try to use Arial. If Arial is not available, it will use
whatever font the user has set for their sans-serif font. Normally,
this is Arial or Helvetica.

The size is set as -1 for the larger font and -2 for the smaller font.
This will generally resolve to a size of 2 and 1 respectively. Details
on how relative font sizes are applied can be found at the following

None. I looked at the source for the ads appearing on this page.
