Try the keyboard CTRL key at the same time as rotating the mouse scroll wheel and see if that helps.

depending on your os go to tools/internet options/accessability and put a tick in 'ignore font size on web pages' which should be of use.

Or if you're using Internet Explorer 7 as your browser, increase the magnification by clicking on the little arrow beside "100%" at the bottom right of the brower window, just above the clock. That will give you the choice to increase the page magnification.

I would suggest trying Opera click here it's page zoom feature ( as opposed to 'Text Zoom' ) works really well.

Before zooming page click here

After zooming page click here

For Mozilla, try Tools > Options > Content > Default Font Size (Change) > Advanced (Change). OKs all the way back.
