Greetings,

How should I adjust my text size on my 21(inch) screen so it looks
nicely fit on client's 17(inch), all are with IE 6? I use 'Larger'
text size but it appears large on client's and affecting the overall
look of the aspx page.
MTIA,

ps We all use the same resolution, but I don't know if this is relevan

I think all except graphics programs don't care about the actual size of
screen. They usually find place in the screen through system
coordinates(pixels).

So a windows that will occupy full screen in 17 inches monitor with 800 *
600 resolution will also occupy full screen in 21 inches monitor with the
same resolution.
So you should instead worry about the resolution client will use.

I'm not yet familiar with Objects in ASP.NET so I'll simple recommand you to
use Javascript's Screen Object to save screen size infomation in hidden
controls and read them later in the ASP.NET form.
