Using Browser to Resize Font

We have gone to great lengths to see that our website will allow its users to size the text to their personal preference. Look below for information about increasing the text size in your web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, AOL…)

Internet Explorer 5+

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there is an item labeled 'Text Size', which opens a sub-menu. This sub-menu should have the items 'Largest', 'Larger', 'Medium', 'Smaller', and 'Smallest'. One of these items should be marked; this is your current font size. Selecting a higher font size will make the letters on the website larger (and possibly easier to read), while a lower font size will make the letters smaller, letting you see more of the web page at once.

Netscape Navigator 4.x

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there are two items labeled 'Increase Font' and 'Decrease Font'. Selecting 'Increase Font' will make the letters on the web-page larger (and possibly easier to read). Selecting 'Decrease Font' will make the letters smaller, allowing you to view more of the website in one window. Alternately, you can hold down the keyboard key labeled 'Ctrl' and then press ']' to increase the font size or '[' to decrease the font size.

Netscape 6+, Fire Fox (Mozilla - Gecko)

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there is an item labeled 'Text Zoom' with a percentage in parentheses. When you select this item a sub-menu will open which gives you a number of self-explanatory options for changing your font size. Alternately, you can hold down the keyboard key labeled 'Ctrl' and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease your font size, respectively. Increasing your font size will make the text on the webpage larger (and possibly easier to read), while decreasing your font size will make the text smaller, enabling you to see more of the webpage without scrolling.

Safari 1.0b

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there are two items labeled "Make Text Bigger" and "Make Text Smaller". Alternately, you can hold down the "command" key (the one with the apple logo on it) and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease your font size, respectively. Increasing your font size will make the text on the webpage larger (and possibly easier to read), while decreasing your font size will make the text smaller, enabling you to see more of the webpage without scrolling.

AOL

AOL browser 7+ is similar to Netscape 6+ and Mozilla, while earlier versions were similar to Internet Explorer. AOL also allows you to use any browser you want. If you don't know what browser you're using, you can usually find out by looking in the Help menu under 'About foobar', where 'foobar' is replaced by the name of the browser. Selecting 'About foobar' will bring up specific version information.
