Font-size problem, Kindle 2

For one of the styles in my book, I set "font-size:small;" but on the Kindle the font size still looks set at normal size. Could somebody say what could be wrong?

The way I am making my Kindle file is this: Since I also need to make the book for iBooks, I first make an EPUB file and then convert it to MOBI using KindleGen. Could that be the reason?

I think it's simply a case of the Kindle not supporting the "small" value for font-size. I tried a quick test file and it ignored that styling. However both percentage and em values worked OK, so you could try using one of them instead. For example:

font-size:80%;
or
font-size:0.8em;
