CSS Font size in points doesn't match Node.Font.Size

The problem is that point size used by Node and point size used by CSS are not the same.
One uses a 72 DPI and the other 96. Thus the final pixel sizes are different.
I don’t see how to change one or the other without breaking a ton of people.
Maybe adding a global font DPI so that Node can be made to match CSS ?
