If you are finding it a challenge reading the default text size used in the forums. There are ways in most browsers to adjust the size of the text you see through your browser. The following is a list of some of these methods, we hope they are found to be of help.


MS/Internet Explorer v6.0.2800.1106IS SP1
MS/Internet Explorer v7
When you click the Size button on the Standard Buttons tool bar, the font size on the Web page you are viewing may not change. This behavior may also occur if you point to Text Size on the View menu, and then click any of the following settings:

[*]Largest [*]Larger [*]Medium [*]Smaller [*]Smallest [/list]

This behavior can occur if the Web page you are viewing specifies an absolute font size (either via the HTML code or a style sheet). By default, Internet Explorer does not change the font size on a Web page that uses absolute (instead of relative) font sizes.

To work around this behavior, configure Internet Explorer to ignore font sizes specified on Web pages:
[*]Start MS/Internet Explorer [*]Browser menu bar > Tools menu > Internet Options... [*]General tab > Accessibility button [*]Click to select the Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages check box. [*]Click OK button twice. (1. to close Accessibility dialog, 2. to close Internet Options property page) [/list]

Mozilla FireFox:
The following keyboard key press combinations work.
[*]Increase text size {CTRL + +} [*]Decrease text size {CTRL + -} [/list]

Opera v9.25:
The following keyboard key press combinations work.
[*]Increase text size {SHIFT + Numeric Keypad +} [*]Decrease text size {SHIFT + Numeric Keypad -} [/list]

Dang! Works like a charm in IE7, too. I didn't know you could do that. I thank you, Steve; my eyes thank you...
