I have set a certain para. font size to px because I do not want it to increase when the browser font size is increased. It works fine in IE6 and opera (opera magnify probably does something different?). But in FFox (2) and Netscape the font still increases. I thought px would prevent this. Any clues?

For accessibility the font should not be fixed. I wasn't aware that FF2 and NS enlarged fixed font but maybe they have done as an accessibility feature.

I've been trying to remember - maybe it introduced with FF2. Have you tried in IE7?

i think it will do that no matter what you do its so people hard of sight can set it to what they feel is adaquate!

Note I said IE6 does fix the px font size. I will try IE7 when I get my inetpub folder networked as IE7 is on another computer in the house. I keep IE6 on my text computer. I have also decided to make the background image stretch so as to make the whole thing accessible.
