    Ok... I have finished making the site:

    http://daaseart.com

    But there is still one problem, I'd like to fix before stopping my work on it completely. If you notice, the page (index) displays corrently when you have the text set to medium (View > Text Size > Medium). However, if you make it bigger, the image of David no long lines up with the rest of the page, this has the same effect if you make the text size smaller. Is there any way that I can set the text size to medium, and medium ONLY while browsing these pages? Perhaps through CSS?

    Thanks

    I believe the best way to accomplish this is to use CSS and set the size using pixels. That should make it a fixed size. But don't forget about the folks who need to enlarge the font size to see. If its possible, try to make it so if the text is enlarged the page will not become distorted.

    I tried to access your site but the server could not be found.

    So how many pixels should I make the font size be to equal whatever the "Medium" size is?

    I think it might be 12. Just do a test: have one bit of text on a page set to a pixel value and the other not set to anything, then see if they match.

    Here is a very good article that deals with this problem, and how to compensate for it using elastic design. Take a look, it contains a lot of good tips:
