When I look at my page in FireFox and modify the text size, all of the text on the page gets larger (which is what I want). However, in IE only some of the text gets bigger - the text in the body just gets further apart...

Is this a browser issue that I cannot fix? On another site that I have that is just HTML and CSS (no CMS/SQL), all of the text on the page gets bigger (which is what I want).

page at ostig.com

edit - now there seems to be quite a lot on IE that displays "incorrectly" when resizing so I assume I changed one too many lines in the CSS and/or templates... grrr... 

Thanks.

Hi KevinK,

Sorry for a late response. To be able to resize font sizes in IE they cannot be set in pixels, but should instead use %, em or keywords. Some good articles about font-sizes:

http://www.maxdesign.com.au/presentation/relative/
http://usabletype.com/css/font/sizes/
http://usabletype.com/styles/sizes/

You also write that there are more things that display incorrectly in IE, could you specify that?

Hope this helps a bit on the way. :D

Thanks for the reply. After a bit of searching, I realize that the content is being set with fixed px sizes and that is why the inability to resize. In the spreadsheet it is using em and I thought that was carrying through.

As for the other stuff not displaying, I think I caused my own problems by editing too much css and/or  templates and now I cannot get back - so I am going back to square one...

Having fun with the product though, jsut takes a bit of figuring out what I should mess with and what I should not - at this point...

Did you copy your content from Word or elsewhere, where the font size had already been set? You'd better remove all styles that are set in the html and only use CSS to style.

Good luck with your tweaking. Don't hesitate to ask again if you need more help. :D
