    Preventing font size increase in browsers

    I have a site that uses a slideOut Menu script in which I am including some text within the slide out panels, everything works fine. The problem I have however is that if the user increases the text size on their browser it makes everything on the page look very untidy and some text is not even visible. Is there a way to prevent this happening and ensure that the font size is always maintained. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Regards

    In IE I believe there are ways of doing that; however any Moz based browser will make all of the fonts larger, there is no way of stopping that. My best suggestion would be to use GIFs instead.

    Yup. IE Windows can't resize fonts set in pixels (or points, but points isn't meant for screen anyway). But IMHO that's a reason to not use them, not to use them.
