Re: Font size question - resolved

Kathleen,
Your stylesheet could be modified to take care of this issue. If you put
the font size to smallest in IE, you will notice that the two lines at the
bottom of the page, are marginally readable. They are larger than the text
in the middle of the page and in the left nav. The difference? The text in
the middle of the page and the nav is in table cells. Your css declaration:

P {font-size: .95em;}

is not doing anything to the text in table cells (you can make the text red
or really really large in the stylesheet to help debug this sort of thing).
You do have the same settings for <td> in the stylesheet, but as far as IE
is concerned, you don't have text in the <td>'s, just <p>'s. If you change
the td style declaration to:

td p {font-size: .95em}

you'll notice a difference. You'll need to take care of this for the <li>
tags as well.

Hope this helps,
AWK
