Can this site be made Font Size Friendly?

I have bought a new laptop with a new version of windows(windows vista) and a new version of internet explorer.

Good News:
The laptop has got a fine display.
Bad News:
The font looks so small.

Good News:
I have changed the DPI settings for windows
Bad News:
Some sites use their own settings of font style and size and won't go with my size. Unfortunately including this one. Now I am typing some letters with middle width (the height of "s" "o" "m" "a" "u" etc) of only 1.2 millimeters or 1/16 inch, so anybody please help me...

Bad News:
I don't know how to let IE7 to stick to my font size irrespect of that a webpage has set as default.
Good News:
MIF is a nice guy. I believe you can at least make this site Font Size Friendly.:)  And I believe it's not only me who uses a late laptop to view this site- I envy your eye sight or comtempt your ignorance to your  precious eyes. tongue

Correction: I have found the zoom button on the right bottom corner of IE 7. But zoom is only a zoom, the alignment of zoomed small letters is very unnatural. So Mathsisfun I wish you can make a change!!! Thanks!!!

Hmmm... I don't know why it won't work in IE7.

See if Firefox does a better job, and let me know.

Otherwise ... maybe we can work on a style (template) that can do what you need.

I'm on laptop, but use firefox (which is far superior to IE) I've yet to have a problem.

WRONG

Re: Can this site be made Font Size Friendly?

I have used firefox once, but it didn't display a registration tab on an important site for me, so I quit using it.

Generally I use Maxthon, which is just above IE- I mean quite similar but approporately improved. Now IE7 has adopted multiple windows, which I guess is copying Maxthon.

Pretty much almost all browsers use tabs nowadays, so you can't really say that anyone copied anyone. People just know about tabbed browsing and then decide one day that they should implement it in their next release, or similar. But a lot of people have said that IE7 got their ideas from Mozilla Firefox.

Firefox had it for maybe a year before IE. But "tabs" is definitely not a new idea ... I have seen them on folders in filing cabinets smile
