The percentage is the .. percentage .. of your visitors chosen default
font size. 90% is only 90% of my chosen size. Or yours. Or BillyBob's.
See this page of mine, which may help in understanding:

If 100% looks too large in *your* browsers, decrease your own default by
a little bit.

I'd also recommend you not use pixel (px) sizing for anything but sizes
of images, and borders 'round stuff. Use em units instead. This way,
when the visitor with vision problems comes by and increases the size to
something s/he can read, your content doesn't escape outside your
constrained limits.

I'd call it using "external css" rather than "inpage..." ;-)

While you wait for your books, have a play here:

You have HTML errors on your page:
