Yahoo and fonts changing

  exdragon 16:07 11 Jul 2010

Hi - a friend of mine uses Yahoo for his email but the font changes type and size as he enters text. I don't know enough about Yahoo to know what questions to ask, so would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

I know he has Windows 7. I'm also trying to convert him to Outlook!

Your browser determines the default appearance of fonts (including size, style, and color) in the Yahoo! interface. You can also change the font size of the text in your email messages when you view them using Yahoo! click here

Choose from "Messages Only" or "All Text in Your Browser"

Thanks - he's sorted it himself.

In case it's of use to anyone else:

The answer is that Yahoo! has a preset font for plain text which can only be altered (or rather, stopped) by going to tools, internet options, general, and then clicking on an option which allows the default to be overriden by whichever font was last set when typing. It seems to work.

I'll await his next priblem!

Priblems always cause problems, don't they?
