View Full Version : Font size problem on large screens (16:9 ratio)

May 9th, 2010, 11:58 PM
It's not a major problem since nothing overlaps nor becomes hidden, yet the look of my web site is not the same. Texts look too big in my background.

This problem occurs on both Firefox and IExplorer. Chrome makes it look good.

Like I said, it's only on screen with 16:9 (1,777) resolution ratio that it happens.

For those who don't have a large screen, here's what it looks like:

Is there a way I can lock the font size, independantly of the screen resolution? So that it always appear the same way?

Thanks for the help.

I’m sorry but your problem isn’t reproducable without you providing a link to the actual page in question. Normally there is no (relative) difference of sizes in different screen resolutions whatsoever, or screen resolution has nothing to do with font size, respectively. You must have done something else wrong. Consult the HTML validator (http://validator.w3.org/) and the CSS validator (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/) and check what they say. And if you want ay help from us, provide your (entire) code.

It looks like you may have a div issue ( you code would help check this). Which way did you declare your font size? small, medium, large or by pt 14pt?

I specified my font size in pt...

The actual page is http://www.mechantdesign.com

Everything is fine on 4:3 computer screens.

I have a 5:4 screen and I can't reproduce the issue. However, HTML is completely platform-independent--I am hesitant to believe it's due to screen resolution, and much more likely to do with the fact that you used two separate browsers (Firefox & Chrome) to display the screenshots. Also, it doesn't help us that you've changed the design from the one in the screenshots.

You may find a better unity with browser screen size adjusting.
