    I have noticed that many of the biggy web sites like CNN, MSN etc. are not affected when you use the browser view/text size options from the tool bar.( Internet Explorer) On the other hand my site is severly affected. If the user does not have his/her browser set to medium or smaller, the text over runs all of my tables.

    Can anyone explain in simple terms how to control this?

    Hey Rick,
    You can control text size and specify exactly how large you want your text to be on a page by using CSS. Did that answer your question? Probably not, but you can find a good intro to CSS
    here.
    That tutorial will walk you through how to set up your style sheets and what you can do with them. Hope it helps.

    Thanks for the info Jason. I figured it would be that, as it is of course, something I'm going to have to learn. 3 months ago I would not have even recognized HTML code if it fell in front of me. So this web development has been a real challange. Always something new to learn!! Now off to learn CSS! Thanks again.
