Change Text Size In Microsoft Internet Explorer 5
If you don't like the text display on certain sites, you can set your own text size in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and greater. To do this, run IE and choose Tools|Internet Options. When the dialog box opens, click the General tab and then click Accessibility. Select the check boxes labeled "Ignore colors specified on Web pages," "Ignore font styles specified on Web pages," and "Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages." Click OK to return to the Internet Options dialog box. Click OK to close the dialog box and save your selections.
Now, choose View|Text Size and choose the text size you want to use.
Note that these changes won't work on all Web pages, but they do work on most.
