    Okay, on my site www.brockglaze.com If you are using Internet Explorer and you go to the [View] menu, then click [Text Size] and set it to anything larger than Medium, everything on my site overlaps and looks jumbled... Is there anyway to fix this so that either 1: the text is always the same size no matter what a persons browser settings, or 2: the site adjusts to conform to a particular user's browser settings?

    2: is preferrable method, but I would like to know how to do option 1: as well...

    All help is appreciated! Thanks

    As far as I can understand, it look slike you've given heights to cells, take these heights away and see if it makes much difference. you should use the following styles to create a fully scalable website:

    font-size: xx-small,x-small,small, medium,large,x-large,xx-large, or 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 where 7 is largest.

    Tables will automatically adjust. Your text is LOCKED in place and is not adjusting to its own resizing due to position:absolute.

    but <div>s can be much more versitile. Try positioning things with percentages, see if that helps.
    Whoth steps forth to mock the teal? Whom couldst say a color superior!

    Proclamith me, it cannot be done.

    I am not too familiar with using <div>'s. Why do you believe they are more versatile than using tables?

    If you wish the text to be an absolute size, regardless of the browser settings, just set them up on your stylesheet with an absolute size...

    eg.

    body { font-size: 14px }

    Should then not resize, though I have a feeling that in Mozilla it may do so as the method Mozilla uses to increase text size is different than IE.

    Although <div>s can't be centered, like a table can, putting them into an external style sheet (god) can be very easy, and almost any property can be applied to it. It makes them an incredibly powerful tool, much like an iframe that does not load apart from the window. I like them a lot, myself.
