Any help on how I can handle clients who have their pc settings to large fonts? This of course causes my web pages to be displayed incorrectly.
Someone said I can handle this through JS but I'm not finding a definite answer yet...

thanks for any help.

You cannot handle this through js. If a user has set their font sizes other than default, they may also have set js off. In these cases, js will do nothing. It is far better to design your page so that any reasonably sized font will work with it. Any page can be made to look horrible if the font size gets too whacked out, and users who adjust their own font size, at least most of them, know this and will readjust.
