    quick html font question

    hey, i'm fixing my layout on my website and came across with a problem. In Internet Explorer, when someone clicks View->TextSize-> and makes a really large font size my site looks really bad because I developed it with small fonts. How do I make it so that my font would stay the same font size no matter what? (ie. 10pt)
    Thanks!

    i dont think you can, because the changing of the text size through IE is client side, and specific to each computer.
    the best things in life are simple.

    Don't think you can prevent the user from altering your text size that way. I think its for old people who are blind or something...

    Store all your text as images.
    Sure it'll take forever to load, but they won't resize it anytime soon.
    Or use flash which essentially does the same thing only isn't quite as annoying.
    If you own a piece of land and there is an volcano on it and it ruins a
    nearby town, do you have to pay for the property damage?

    Use flash and create a loading screen which would, in turn, make your site more interesting. If you need help with flash, i'm your man
