    Question Text Size on blog

    Hi everyone,
    I recently set up my wordpress blog and notice on some computers that when you go to "View - text size" and make it larger than "medium" the site becomes very distorted. Is there some type of code I can include in my css sheet so that when a vistior changes the text size on their browser, the text doesn't change on my blog so it doesn't become distorted?

    Please help! Thanks!

    Yes, but you shouldn't use it. If someone's increasing the text size, it's because they need the text to be larger to read it. There are millions of people with poor vision, that's why the ability is built into our browsers and operating systems. Do you want to shut them out of your site?

    Question

    Hi Dan,
    No, I definitely don't want to shut them out of our site, there just seemed to be a problem with the text increase. On our site on certain computers, when the text size is set to "large" or "largest" everything seems to be quite unreadable and distorted. Not sure why this is? I thought maybe it was something in the css coding?

    Thanks again!

    If you want to accomodate text resizing users you must set your font sizes n relative units such as em's and have the container of that be with ems too so it won't overflow the container.
