My texts go strange when font size is changed

Hi all,


I'm having a problem with my web site which I'm working on. The problem is that if I change the size of the font everything turns into a mess - here's my web site: www.sound-creations.net . See the "About" page for example.

On other web sites I've seen that they have made the font size constant. While searching some forums I found that some people thought that seting the font size to a constant was totally against the idea of CSS. You tell me, how can I solve a such problem? I'm personally ok with my default settings and didn't mind looking at the site with constant font sizes.

Maybe there's a better solution?

Having a fixed font size is not anti-CSS at all but works against accessibility by those who may need to resize the font to read it. But once you get into fluid layouts it can sometimes get tricky trying to keep it all together. One of the better designers I know says you should allow our site to resize two steps or three but after that, you cannot be faulted if the page breaks.

So, generally, there is nothing wrong with fixed font sizes. Many pages, especially those created by typographers, are fixed point.

On your about page, change the style to this:
width:500px; margin:0 auto; top: 443px; height: 24px;

Thank you. I've solved the problem after some time learning how to create divs and how to float objects.

I totally love my new hobby, making web sites, :)
