Using Dr. Orca most websites appear with smaller fonts compared to Avant.

I believe that is because the gecko engine uses smaller fonts then the IE engine.
But maybe there is away to get the same size

I'm guessing that it would change depending on your system's default language, but setting a default text size can be done using the about:config screen.

Type about:config into the Address bar and press Enter
Look for font.size.variable.x-western in the list and double-click it.
Change the number to the default font size that you want. The default is 16. Go lower for smaller and higher for bigger.

Maybe someone with more experience could verify this, but concerning your comment, dink, my guess is that the setting in Firefox wouldn't matter at all since Orca is using its own configuration file. I'm unsure what an update in Avant would do to affect the font in Orca. :-s
