I have my browser set on 'largest' and the text here is still too small. Does this forum have a way to enlarge the text?

This has come up before (http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=69493). It seems that when the program was written, it was set to have a fixed font size of 12pt, bo mattter what your prowser settings are. The TFL staff doesn't write the software, so I doubt there is much that can be done until the next upgrade (maybe).

.nf {
FONT-FAMILY: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
FONT-SIZE: 12px;

I do wonder if removing the second line from this class in the style sheet would do any harm, though...

Okay, I figured it out. I opened TFL using the Opera5 browser. I can explode the text up to 1000%! 120% works better tho...

Thanks,
Callahan

Glad to help (if I did). Do you have more information on the Opera5 Browser? Some other members may benefit from it as well.

Sure. It can be downloaded free at http://www.opera.com/ . What you get with the free download is a great browser with a little advertisment window up top. For a yearly fee the ad box will be removed, but I never fooled with that. The banners don't bother me a bit. I recommend it highly as a secondary browser, Netscape just plain sucks.

I use Opera 5 about half of the time. It's fast and secure.
