    Zoom Problem in IE

    Hi. I'd like to solve a problem that I'm having in internet explorer.

    My navigation is "going all funny" when someone presses "ctrl" + "mouse scroll wheel" ...when they zoom or enlarge the text.

    An example can be seen here:

    Style sheet is here:

    I do not have this issue in Firefox.

    I am using ems as the unit of measurement.

    I appreciate the assistance.

    I get the same effect in both IE & FF (ie, the list items get stacked over, when we zoom beyond a limit)

    You may avoid this by setting a width in em to your #Container, say 64em or something. See http://jontangerine.com/log/2007/09/...youts-with-css

    Isn't there some way to just make the container expand with the text as it does in Firefox?

    I'll have to get to this on the weekend. i am surprised that there is so much to read and do in order to fix something that already works in firefox.

    i tried to specify a size on my:

    #Navigation1 a, a:visited

    but it wouldn't take.

    The problem I'm having is that in Internet Explorer the text is falling out of their borders when the page is zoomed. In firefox this does not happen. All elements resize properly.

    Can I see an example of my style sheet modified to accommodate internet explorer.

    Again, an example can be seen here:

    http://www.juliesilvester.com.au/

    Style sheet is here:

    http://www.juliesilvester.com.au/css/styles.css

    Thank you.

    PS. That Article looks interesting and I'll read it when I have time. Right now I just need to see what I need to do to my style sheet to handle this situation.
