    I am just beginning to incorporate CSS in my Web sites. I want to control my text so that it is one size -- no matter the resolution of the computer.

    (... I know, I know ... In his "Designing Web Usability" book Jacob Nielsen says not to do this...But how else can you ensure your pages display the way you want them to look?!!!)

    My problem is with bulleted and numbered lists. Can anyone tell me what to do so that my lists are the same font size as my paragraphs. Right now if I enlarge the text size of my browser, my paragraphs are 12 pt but my list fonts are huge. To see what I mean, visit this page and set the text size to "Larger": http://www.glasspoole.com/resume.html

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    You just need to specify a style for either UL or LI the tags which comprise your list.

    UL { font-size: 12pt; }
    to apply it to all unordered lists.

    LI { font-size: 12pt; }
    to apply to anything within the list.

    Hope this helps.

    Hmm..does it really work? Cause I tried specifying styles for UL and lI but they still re-sized to the font size.

    Please tell me if it works! thanks =)
