Courier CSS resizing problems

A site I'm building for a client uses Courier for it's main font. I was trying to re-size it down enough to fit in to his navigation properly, and it wouldn't shrink down enough. This seems to be something inherent in the font. If you're trying to re-size Courier in CSS, change to Courier New instead - that can re-size down.

I presume this is something to do with Courier New being made for scaling or a True Type font or something, but I don't have time to investigate as I should have left the office all ready. I left this more as a note for people having trouble like I was earlier today.

Yeah, Courier is a bitmap font, whereas Courier New is TrueType and so can be freely scaled.
