Question Font size in KDE and GNOME

Hello! I'm trying to work with both GNOME and KDE programs, and that's what I see. If I launch a KDE application under GNOME, it has too large fonts. If I try to launch some GNOME apps under KDE, they have too small fonts (web-pages in Mozilla). I found that: a) launching gnome-settings-daemon when working under KDE solves the second problem - GNOME apps behave normally. But this breaks KDE fonts! b) if I change the desktop/gnome/font_rendering/dpi value (using gconf-editor) from 96 to the REAL resolution value (in my case, 87 - known through the font selection dialogue in Mozilla Firebird), KDE applications have their native font sizes back. But, as you may guess, it breaks Mozilla and GNOME Terminal. "It's a long and sad tale", as a Lewis Carrol's Mouse said... Does anyone know a solution? Thank you.
