    Going Bonkers - Font is way bigger in IE

    Hey all,

    I have no clue what else to try. Anything I do, the font looks way bigger in IE which is messing up my layout. I have tried changing the font, the size, I dont know what else to do.

    The site in question is http://hostwp.com/instant/

    If anyone out there has any advice for me, please let me know because this has been driving me crazy for a few hrs now.
    Thanks In Advance

    David

    You have style3 font size = medium.
    medium is different in different browsers.
    Set you base font size as a percentage instead, and set style3 as a percentage.

    You'd be good to not use px for fonts (who uses them anyway?) because IE users can't increase text size with pixels.

    I agree. This has been my experience also. Another tip is to find wordpress themes that look good in both IE and FireFox and just study/review their css. Learn how they were designed that way when you are making your own stylesheet you can use the themes as examples.
