    Hi everyone

    I've constructed a website where the background image consists of various graphics that need to contain text.

    Therefore, I've absolutely positioned divs to contain the text so that it sit on the relevant page elements.

    When the website is resized using the zoom method, zoom out makes the text in one of the divs overflow it's element. This doesn't happen in Firefox but does in Chrome and Safari. I haven't checked it in IE yet.

    I've tried using different sizings for the font, eg px, ems, percentages but this doesn't make any difference.

    On my iphone, it was making the text larger in that element and I've applied the style -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100% to the element which has resolved that issue.

    I'm wondering if it's because those browsers have a minimum size you can zoom to. The text in this particular div is smaller than the others.

    If anyone can help me on this I'd really appreciate it as I'm going to start tearing my hair out soon! :cry:

    Thank you!

    We'll need a link to the site so we can see it ourselves.

    Using the "viewport" meta tags for mobile ? They set the intial view size, then all "resizing" is based off that. Some instances, makes a huge difference .... But I still find it easier ( with most sites ), to just provide a seperate set of "mobile" friendly pages... "No, I don't mean responsive".. And I normally only do that for sites with less the 20-25 pages
