    I have designed my site so that everything looks nice using a specific text size (font size = 3). However on my computer at work the default text size in Internet Explorer is "Smaller" rather than "Medium" (Pull down View menu> Text Size). This is annoying as it screws up the entire look of my index page. Is there any way to force Internet Explorer to use the medium text size setting?

    Thanks

    I think you'd probably have to explicity set the text sizing with cascading style sheets (css).

    So far as I know, the browser text size is read-only from the browser object model -- so you cannot change it, say, from a client-side script.

    etLux...you can overrider user stylesheet settings with CSS. That is one of the main disputes with it's use.

    When you are setting up your styles, specify pixel size (px) as the value and it will be always be that many pixels tall (based on the monitor settings)

    header {font-family: verdana; font-size: 12px; font-weight: bold; }

    You're correct, creole. I misspoke on this -- and should have taken a moment to give a clear example as have you.

    LOL... thanks, creole. However, I have to slap myself upside the head every now and then. It's a bad habit of old coders to skip over details sometimes; because we're so used to doing certain things, certain ways, it's no longer a conscious process.

    But the purpose of answering a post in a forum is, presumably, to actualy help -- and skipping important parts of an expanation often does more to confuse than to assist.

    As self-imposed punishment, tomorrow (Thanksgiving) I shall eat only the giblets.
