I'm doing some ASCII images on my site and I need to get the text-size super small. What is the best, smallest size obtainable? It doesn't have to legable and it's better if it's not. Then you don't even know its ascii.:cool:

the smallest legable on an 800x600 is <font style="font-size: 7pt"> but go down from there...

good luck :thumbsup:

Well, this could be a rather complicated issue. You could use CSS to make the font so small that it's illegible:

<style type="text/css">
BODY {
font-size: 1pt;
}

:D .

However, there are quite a few variables to consider. Such as, the users screen resolution, if they have specified a larger font size in their browser, etc. For example, try holding down your 'Ctrl' key and rolling your mouse ball. Also, if you use CSS2, it will depend on whether the user's browser supports it or not.

For more comprehensive information on this, here's a link you might want to follow and check out the information on font-size manipulation there:

Good luck ;).

Also, is it possible to change line-spacing? I've gotten the font almost small enough, now i need the horizontal lines closer because they're breaking apart and adding white space.
