Fixed font size

P: n/a
wj
Hi all,

I making a web site where people can change the font size with a form on
a seperate page. I store the value in session-variables and read them
every time a page is loaded.

I wonder if it is possible to prevent people changing the fontsize with
Mozilla or IE menu's? Can anyone tell me more about this?

Thanx!

How is this related to PHP?

But the answer is short and simple: NO (esp. since there are many, many
other clietns).

As long as you don't use fixed font sizes (ie px or pt) then the user can
adjust the font size in IE (if you use px or pt they can't). In pretty much
all other browsers they can adjust the font size using their menus/shortcut
keys no matter what you do. Why not let them decide how large they want
their fonts themselves instead of making it a function of your site? It's a
behaviour already built into the browser.

Hi all,

I making a compact disk where I offer the same song in 15 different volume
levels.

I wonder if it is possible to prevent people changing the volume with their
amplifier or disc man? Can anyone tell me more about this?

Thanks

A very correct analogy!

Even with px they can resize it, but it's a bit more difficult. And pt
is useless at all for screen presentation.
