    May be they can just increase the font size in the stylesheet.

    2nd witness, now it is official. :)

    It is unfortunate that DarkOrb seem to base their HTML coding on the IE Browser. IE shows a larger font size than other Browsers do -- also overlooks a lot of HTML code errors which other Browsers do not.

    Re: Re: I cannot read this forum more than 5 minutes

    This is one thing that I get tired of very fast. There are so many sites out there that work in IE, but not in most other borwsers because IE is made to handle errors. When I do a website I want to make sure it works right. That's why I don't use IE, but with the way things are going, someday we're all going to have to use IE just to be able to view sites.

    Its obvious they are working on the theme.

    That said, they should have made a sub theme and worked on it there leaving their old theme intact.

    This is one of the things I hate about some designs... locking in the font size.

    A user should be able to control the size of the font. That's why the tool is in the browsers. Yet, more and more sites are thinking it's great to control font sizes from the designers side.

    So, now, anyone who has trouble reading small text is completely out of luck.

    This is not a cpanel issue.... it's a web designer 'attitude' issue.

    Everyone remember how blinking text and scrolls and all the fancy tricks that could be done in the beginning of the web? Notice how it came back down to basics? I predict that controlling font sizes is just a fad, and smart designers will once again keep things simple.

    I actually feel differant, I think why make the font bigger for the small amount that don't use IE and make the majority see a larger font that thye don't want to. IE is like 90% + now that netscape went belly up...

    Personly off the topic a little I think everyone should use it, why make things harder then they have to be it's free and works good.

    I like the small font it's clean and for me much easier to read then large text.

    It's the contrast that makes things hard to read on some sites but here the contrast is perfect.

    Also why not use IE to view this forum you most likly have it on your system somewhere, so just set this forum to the home page so clicking on your IE icon will take you here effertlessly. :D

    Or lets all teem up and make a better browser. Maybe cpanel will help ;)

    I don't like microsoft but all the other browsers have problems I have tried them all over and over and always go back to IE.

    Using em instead of px for font size will fix the font size for both IE and Mozilla I think.

    Use Netscape 7.1, Mozilla, or any other Mozilla-based browser and use View | Text Zoom to avoid going blind (px or em).

    And, DWHS.net, IE is only free from here on in with your next Windows upgrade. No more stand alone. (You don't really think M$ gives things away without an ulterior motive, do you?)

    A standards-based web is good for all users, ultimately.

    But I think it's far Superior then other browsers and if it costs a little per year for the best I have no problem with that.

    I hate microsoft's greed just as much as the next guy but they have a great product that works on most OS, I don't know if they have it for linux maybe I will try to install on red hat today to see if it's works.

    But com' on mozzilla, netscape they stick with their oversized graphics and errors I want a browser not a space station control. :)

    more jabber,

    As you can tell I like this topic, it blows me away that no one can make a good browser like ie or better.

    We did a poll and ie was dominant on our forum: http://www.dwhswebhosting.com/hostingforum/viewtopic.php?t=76

    but only 7 votes..

    Ic an also see more features that would be great that are not used like invisible borders and window splitting.

    The main thing I would like is small text no graphics super slim border and control over every part I have to view for this I would pay.

    The fungshwai of browsers

    That's what microsoft wants. Once the world is pretty much set on IE and other browsers go off the market, they can start charging for it.

    What's needed is standard web page coding. They're working towards that, but it's questionable whether or not it'll ever come to be. There are just too many companies that are better off without standardization.

    For various reasons "em" should never be used. One should stick to using "px" or 'percentages" although, IE not being much of a Standards compatible Browser, doesn't allow one to re-size text if "px" are used -- but will if "percentage" is used.

    People using a Mac would probably go blind reading this Forum -- if they can even read the text, that is -- as a Mac uses a Text size of about 2 levels smaller than a PC. This Forum uses a Font size of 11px and less than 12px should never be used. A size of 14px is ideal for the majority of people -- regardless of what Browser/version they are using.

    People who code HTML pages for a living have found that IE is a Browser that will "mommy" the code. In other words, it will try to correct HTML code errors -- how is a person to know their code is incorrect, if IE will not tell them?

    The problem is that it doesn't work ctrl+wheelmouse !

    The font size if fixed, so even IE doesn't resize it !

    exactly.

    Even with IE I think the font size is a little too small here for any decent amount of reading.

    In IE, there's an accessibility option to ignore font sizes specified by the autor. You can enable that option and then choose a better font size with your mouse or however.

    You can also use your own CSS stylesheet (even in IE). This is how the forum displays in my Opera 7 browser with a style sheet I wrote after reading Radio_Head's comment (http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?threadid=13066).
