My website is written in HTML. The font size of the text is 3. While I was highlighting certain sections on the Explorer Browser to copy them, the text on the webpage shrank suddenly. When I switched to HTML source, the text size was still 3, even though it now appears as size 1. My entire Website, 10 pages or more, has this problem. The text on the rest of the computer has not changed and the resolution has not changed since the pictures on the webpage did not change. Please note that different users of this computer prefer different resolutions, So everyday the appearance settings get toggled from 600x800 to 1024x768. Is there a way to have a different setting for each user on XP? Does this daily switch have anything to do with my website font size not reflecting its HTML code? Also note that I hava a style Css file in the website, but in many cases I overide its directions by writing out font style and font size in the HTML code itself. Can the dangling STYLES CSS file be the problem?

If you have a scroll mouse, hold Ctrl and then scroll the mouse - notice that the text size changes. Check that the browser Text Size option has not changed.

Yes, such a simple thing, thanks!
About the daily switching back and forth between 600x800 and 1024x 768, do you think that this can damage something over time? Also, am I right that most people use 600x800?

Most people use 1024x768 or 1280x1024, as they are native LCD resolutions.

I prefer to run at 1600x1200, just because I can :p
Switching between resolutions shouldn't break anything.
