    All right, I'm gettin' :steamed:

    I need help from those more knowledgeable than I (and that's a LONG list! ;f ).

    For some reason, whenever I try to view GT, THR, or Yahoo pages, the font is a helluva lot larger than other websites that I view. AR15.com comes in fine, hotmail comes in fine, as do all the other sites that I visit. But those three put everything in a much larger font. Any ideas on how to fix this, so I don't have to scoot back 20 feet so I can read GT like a normal person? ;4

    If it helps, I'm running a Dell 2001FP 20" flat screen off a Compaq 5660, running Windows 98. Has always run fine in the past until the last week or so.

    Thanks in advance.

    are you using internet explorer?

    some pages specify a font size, and others leave it up to your browser's default settings.

    there should be an option under View -> text size that you can play around with to adjust it.

    Ahhh....thank you, Sir! :)

    Somehow, under View, the Text Sizing option had been changed.

    Sanity has returned, all is right with the world.

    Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!! ;+

    Now I can return to Godzilla on AMC! ;f

    Holding down CTRL and scrolling the mouse wheel will also change the size. The font size change only works for text that is not explicitly set in the HTML, that's why some sites where not affected.

    Toyman - is that the case with Internet Explorer as well? I know that's how it works with Firefox.

    UPDATE - Yep. It is. Duh, I have both on my desktop here.
