    I have a page cl-network.com,,, which reads fine.

    but when the Internet explorer text size is set to larger, everything gets messed up.

    how can I force it to display at medium..

    or is there any other solution.

    thank you...

    according to w3

    Pixel units (px) are relative to the resolution of the viewing device. meaning the user agent must change it according to the output of the device.

    points (pt) are absolute and shouldn't change.

    why do you have 5 css links to the same file? :cross-eyed:

    Code:
    <link href="test1.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    just curious.

    That is not the solution you want as it flies in the face of web accessibility. Instead, you should modify the page such that fonts up to Largest scale normally without breaking the page's layout.

    It can be hard, but with practice and thoughtful layouts, it can be done.

    Often the problem you speak of is caused by the use of fixed position, and absolute DIVs in web design. It is usually advisable to make use of a table layout for your website.
