Hey

My websites font are being displayed differently in different screen sizes. I have attempted using the scripts, but would much rather redirect users to a different stylesheet as opposed to a new window.

In 1024 by 768 fonts are normal. Although in larger screen resolutions, the font is much bigger. Any idea on how to neautralize this.

It tried plaing:

body {font-size:80%;}

in the css to try fixing it but it doesnt seem to work.

Any ideas??

I think you have that backward, as resolution shrinks, all objects on the page grow in apparent size, let your users worry about this. Generally, a person browsing with 800x600 resolution has their browser's text size set to 'smaller'. At 1024x768, 'normal' is common. At higher resolutions 'larger'. If they did not, the text would be too big on the small screen or too tiny on the larger screen. If you try to compensate for them, it will double the effect of their browser's settings and render the text either too big or too small for them.
