Fonts TINY on Mac, ok on PC

I'm doing some emails for a client - my font size in Dreamweaver is set to '2' which looks sweet when delivered in a PC email client such as Outlook but way too small when read in Mac MAIL.

This is what I use:

"<span style="line-height: 20px;"><font color="#333333" size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">"

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Have you tried the same code in a browser on the Mac and on the PC, to see if you are getting the same result?

Just a thought but instead of:

<span style="line-height: 20px;"><font color="#333333" size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">

try

<span style="line-height: 20px; color:#333333; font-size:12px; font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;">

Getting rid of the <font> tag may solve it, it's depreciated in HTML anyway. (ps, off the top of my head I don't know the font size 2, so I just used pixels).

This may explain things better:
