    IE 5.1 on Mac

    Okay - this is really a post about testing. Just got a note about one of my websites, saying that a user, using IE 5.1 on a Mac finds my links too small. Arrgh! I don't have access to a Mac to test with. Any suggestions about testing on other platforms? Has anyone run into this problem before?

    Cheers

    Hi Catherine,

    I would suggest checking your CSS definitions. Make sure to use Relative declarations where possible rather than fixed sizes (i.e. font-size: large rather than font-size: 10 pt).

    I hope this isn't just stating the obvious. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Maybe request a screen shot or an Acrobat page capture. "Too small" really doesn't give you much to go on, and if the person is running at an extremely high resolution, I blame them. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    There was a recent discussion here (maybe in IE?) on how to override style sheets in the Accessibility options. Perhaps the person should try that as a short term workaround.
