Disable browser's text resizing functionality in code.

My issue is when I try to increase or decrease the text size of my page by navigating through
“View - > Text Size -> Increase /Decrease” it will change the entire page content.
But my requirement is like even though I try to do the “View - > Text Size -> Increase /Decrease” operation in either Firefox or IE.
My page should not get disturb, No change should occur in my page.
I am following W3 STANDARDS, so that I am using only 'div', not even a single table in my page I have used.

The size of the fields/text/image in my page should remain same even after when I perform the increase/decrease operation (View - > Text Size -> Increase /Decrease).

basically, if you want your page to stay static whenever a user tries to change th size... you need to use absolute sizes.

<div style="font-size:15px;">

Here using px as oposed to the others makes the size fixed

This is only true for IE. Other browsers do not allow this limitation for accessability reasons.
