I noticed that fonts (I use Arial) size larger in Internet Explorer than in Mozilla Firefox. Is there a font, or patch that would enable the fonts to size the same on both browsers? Thanks, Bill

Your fonts look the same in both browsers. I have a huge screen here so I brought your site up side by side in both browsers, and I don't see a bit of difference in the fonts.

You can control two things in your browser when it comes to font size:

1) Text size
2) Magnifaction

Make sure you have your text size set to default (medium) in both browsers. Also make sure you are not magnifiying one browser and not the other. For instance, in Internet Explorer look in the lower right corner of your browser and you should see "100%" followed by a down arrow. If that number is something other than 100% then you are not in the default view.

Most likely you've got a font and/or magnification problem on your computer in one of your two browsers.
