Changing Text Size for web pages

Post by dofred » Wed May 14, 2003 3:10 am

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

I am a relative newcomer so the question may be too simple but here goes:

I know you can change the textsize on a webpage with menu option provided, but someone I spoke to said it could be set up so that you could overcome the default size some webpages lock in to the page format.

An example is Hotmail.com which seems to use very small text which can't be enlarged by the menu option.

How can this type of webpage text be enlarged?

I think this topic has been discussed before, so you may want to search the forum to see what everyone else may have said.

I think what you may be referring to is the option to ignore font sizes within web pages (so that it would only show your default size).  Problem is, I don't think you can do it on a site by site basis.  It's going to be applied everywhere.  Anyways, if this is what you're looking for, then it's a Internet Explorer option, and not an Avant option.

Simply go to Internet Explorer options, and on the 'General' Tab, click the 'Accessibility' button near the bottom.  The resulting page should give you 3 or so options, one of which is ignore font size.  I wouldn't recommend the other two.

I'm actually not sure this has been brought up before. What has been brought up is varying font sizes even though you didn't want to, which was happening in IE and Avant. That was a problem with Outlook Express though.

If you have a scroll mouse you can enlarge (or make smaller) text size on any web page by holding down ctrl and rotating the wheel.
