Question Font sizes

How can I prevent calibre from making some font sizes so small, I can't read the text?

Some CSS declarations have this and even smaller font sizes.

Code:
font-size: 0.41667em
I have no problem with the body text, but sometimes dedications, copyright pages, etc have these font sizes.

What I would like to find out is if there's a way I can set up calibre to not use fonts smaller than say...0.9em while leaving the rest of the font sizes untouched.

Many thanks!

That is what the font size key in conversion options is for.

edit the lower sets of (small) numbers upwards
This is mine with a base font set at 19.2 (arrived at by trial and error)
Code:
12.0, 12.0, 14.0, 16.0, 18.0, 20.0, 22.0, 24.0
as you can see, the 2 smallest sizes are rendered the same size

Thanks, theducks.

I knew there was a setting somewhere but couldn't remember where
