    Making text size stick (IE 6.0)

    At some point I selected "smaller" text size in the view menu of IE. Every time I open IE now, the text size is "smaller" even if I have reset it to my usual preferred setting, "medium." What is to do?

    I also sometimes select different Character sets, from the same submenu yet, and these *do* stick when I close and reopen IE.

    Hi, John ~

    Try this:<UL><LI>Internet Explorer > 'Tools' > 'Internet Options...' > 'General' tab<LI>Click the 'Accessibility...' button and clear the box next to 'Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages'<LI>'OK' > 'Apply' > 'OK'[/list]If that box was already cleared then try this:<UL><LI>Close all instances of Internet Explorer, OE, OL, Messenger and any other e-mail program you may use<LI>Open IE and adjust your text size<LI>Go to 'File' > 'Close' while holding down your shift key[/list]Hope this works for you <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    Yes! You got it! I am using Eudora 5.1, and the same problem still occurs. I deselected the Microsoft viewer, and now the text size setting in IE sticks.

    There's a tradeoff. The Microsoft viewer produces a better display than the Eudora one, not only in terms of the way HTML mail displays on the screen, but also that Eudora can not display or compose in Oriental character sets using its native viewer. With the Microsoft viewer, it can display them, though messages can not be composed in them -- I have to been using Yahoo mail under IE, with Microsoft's Traditional Chinese Input Method Editor, when I need to do that. I might have deduced that IE and Eudora were sharing settings by the fact that Oriental characters would display properly in Eudora only if I had previously selected for them in IE.
