With this option chosen, you can then use the View, TextSize choices to control the size of text. I tried it on the WebProNews site you mention, and it works there just as it has on every other site where I've tried it.
Oh, *that* accessibility tab. I had many times gone looking at accessibility options when people had mentioned them, but not in that exact place. Of all the times I've complained about this (sometimes even in a nice tone of voice) you're the first person to point to the correct solution.
At first I thought I had a whole nother rant, because when I changed it, it also changed the fonts on my Eudora. But now I've gone back and forth and haven't been able to repeat the effect. I'll gladly accept a one-time glitch.
I hate to say it, but now, with this option, IE is easier to deal with in this regard than Opera.
