    Hi ssth,
    I am looking at your site in med text and it looks fine. There are alot of factors with the appearance and alot depends on the users settings and the browser they are using. Different resolutions can throw things out of whack too. You changing your text size doesn't affect my view. I check my tracker to see the most common view and try to work with that. I also redid my site recently partly because it looked like a mess in firefox.

    If there is a problem you will usually get feedback. Also, helpful affiliate managers will give you a heads up as well as helpful gpwa members .

    Hope that helped a little.

    Hey, so your saying I should just accept it and move on? I am very close to doing that. I spend about 4 hours today learning CSS and after I published some pages using css....it still jumbled my text when i changed the text size so I am going to just give up and be happy most people will be able to see my site the way I want them to. People have told me using css would prevent that but it isnt working for me. Well, thanks for your help...im gona just keep redesigning it the old fashioned way and if someone does not have their IE set to medium or their firefox set to normal then they can kiss my *** lol

    I do agree with Funboy about checking screen resolutions. Whenever I design a page, I check it in all resolutions to make sure it doesn't look too squirrely and then also check how it looks in FireFox besides Internet Explorer.

    Oddly, I never checked "View Text Size." I did check my own site just now and all sizes appear ok. It could be because although I do use some CSS, I use tables and set their width as percentages. That way, no matter the screen size, it will show my page at 100%, for example, rather than a specific pixel width of say 800 pixels.

    In any case, it looked fine to me until I changed it to a larger font, so I wouldn't lose sleep over it. You will pick these fine points up as you go along.

    Hey SSTH,

    I am not sure screen resolution is the problem here.
    If increased text size ruins your site, then you should look at CSS

    CSS will solve the problem, since you will be able to set the exact text the size you want.

    To set this simply CSS will "lock" the text size and no matter how big the font size on the browser configuration gets it will stay the same on the visitors window.

    I hope I didnt get you confused with the above

    The site looks fine on my browser.... It depends on the resolutions setting that people are using on their computer as well....

    But the site looks fine on my computer....

    The best way to do this via css is to make the text size relative to the size of the screen etc...

    you can do this by making your text styles like this

    style="FONT-SIZE: 0.7em"

    or in your style sheet you can add something like

    .style3 {font-size: 12px}

    Theres a few ways to do this. If you need some help feel free to email me Renee@RewardsAffiliates.com and Ill see if i can give you a hand.

    Cheers
