fractional point sizes up to two decimal places. Unless you preset it, Excel adjusts the row
height as needed to accommodate the largest point size in the row. The available font
styles vary depending on the font you select in the Font list. Most fonts offer italic, bold,

cell style, select the Normal Font check box.
