C# Newby Web App - Browser Question

Hi:

I have launched my first C# web application and the app is running just
fine.

I have an Internet Explorer 6 (on Win 2000) browser related problem with one
user: their browser displays everything REALLY large. Labels cover text
boxes and buttons and they can't use the application. I'm using cascading
style sheets and everything works fine on all machines with this one
exception.

This user has the very same problem when accessing a VB.NET web application
that everyone else can get to just fine.

Does anyone know if there is a program change I can make that will "reset"
the browser? This would be the best solution since others could have this
problem. If not then is there a fix for this problem - I've looked all
around and can't find one.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks,

Fred

Fred,

Under the "View" menu on internet explorer, there is a menu item named
"Text Size". By default, most installs have it set to Medium. However, if
it is set larger, then IE will magnify many of the text elements, ruining a
good amount of alignment work that you might have put into your app.

Hope this helps.
