I was more thinking in terms of having a setting somewhere that makes <pre>, <tt> and other monosize fonts smaller during conversion to moby.
Probably Kovid's advice will fix it, but if not...

I know very little about CSS either dammit.

One easy solution to try is under conversion>look and feel>filter style information. Check/tick fonts box. I did not think the kindle 3 had seperate fonts so this probably will not work, but if it does work you could make it your conversion default.

As to the tweak option, it is a bit of a pain in the butt to have to change a lot of files. I have done over 500 I am sure and and generally do 10 or less at a time. But when they are done they are done.

I inspect a selected portion of the text in the calibre viewer. Usually the font size is listed. At this point I uncheck the box beside the font size to see if everything looks better. If it does I tweak the epub and remove all font size lines in stylesheet.css with that size. Or change them to the size I want. Worst case I just remove every font size reference. Notepad works although there are better programs. Adobe dreamweaver for one.

Once you have done one it takes about a minute per book which to me is better than being annoyed constantly every time you reference the book.

PS I ignore the inheritance and you have the choice to preview the book before you rebuild it.
