    What happened to my fonts . . .

    I was doing some work on my computer this
    evening around 6pm, and my machine was doing
    just fine as far as font display is concerned

    Then, my wife got onto the State of Texas
    site to print some job applications.

    Then I get on the computer after that & all
    of the fonts are really small, just like that

    She says she didn't change any settings, so
    I looked into my web settings & as far as I
    can tell everything is set the same.

    Does anyone have any suggestions about how
    I can return my fonts to normal? When I view
    documents in Word, the fonts are normal.

    Now, I just upgraded my browser from IE 5.5
    to IE 6.0, reckon that has anything to do
    with it? It's been doing just fine for the
    past several days since I upgraded, except
    for today things just changed without ryme
    or reason.....

    Here's what I'm using:

    Inteva 550 mghz, 98 megs RAM
    15 gig hard drive (about 95% full)
    Windows 98 SE
    Monitor set at 800x600
    Internet Explorer 6.0

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated,
    since this small font thing is driving me
    completly NUTTS...

    Thanx,
    Rockrz

    Have you tried View > Text Size?

    Yes, set this to meduim for the default size that you are probably used to. I think there is a keyboard shortcut for this that your wife may or may not have accidentally hit.
