    scaleable text

    good morining all,
    While I KNOW I shouldn't do this, the form I am creating needs to have the text non-scaleable. It's a contract and the lines all need to be exact as the orginal written doc.
    Question: how do I write the code so text does not scale?
    thanks

    Your best bet is to use absolute unit like cm and use a print style sheet but as was stated you cannot have that amount of control for a screen.

    Why not scale the layout (use ems for width/height) when the text resizes? That way the line lengths stay the same as the text gets bigger or smaller.

    Hello all,
    lots to think about.
    I like the ideas of scaling the whole thing.
    thank you everyone for your help.
