    Text size in posts

    In IE6 while looking at a series of Lounge posts, if you do View => Text Size => Largest the text of the posts does not change size. Shouldn't it?

    Thanks!

    Isn't that what the choice of Lounge Skins - between Small, Medium and Large is all about? Try a Quick Skin Switch - top centre of your screen.

    Yes, you're right! It's so long since the <font color=blue>New Skins</font color=blue> were due to have been implemented that I've forgotten all about them....!

    I think it is all down to the CSS used where font sizes are specified in pt sizes rather than (typically) <font size="4">.

    (Probably a bit like tables. If the width is specified as a %, changing the size of your window will affect the size of the table. If it is specified in pixels, it's fixed.)

    Aye, you've forgotten? *sob*

    You can change the text size in Mozilla browsers, Opera I don't know about. IE strictly adheres to what is defined in the CSS code, which, in Lounge skins, is defined in points (pixels).

    <img src=/S/claude.gif border=0 alt=claude width=21 height=21> is totally swamped with paying work and - last we heard - won't be able to take things any further until the end of April at the earliest. HTH

    Surely all true Loungers put the Lounge before all other activities, amongst which remunerative work features very low down?
