Hi,
I want to increase the font size for this site. I use IE 6. Somehow the feature provided be IE to increase the font size does not work for this site. It causes lot of inconveniece to the me, who find it difficult to read smaller fonts.

Is there some alternative way to increase the font size?

It looks like it doesn't work in IE 8 either.

The JForum source code (that this site is based on) hard coded the font sizes. Yuck. Anyone want to volunteer to change and test this?

Interesting. "Zoom in/out" works just fine. It's "only" changing the text size explicitly that has an issue.
