    CSS in IE 5.5 / IE 6


    Hi there,

    Can anyone tell me the difference between IE 5.5 and IE 6 with regards to CSS styles. On my webpages, I'm using CSS styles to set the font sizes etc. This looks fine on IE 6, but when I saw someone browsing my site the other day with 5.5, he was able to resize all the page text etc.

    Whats going on?

    Here's my site. Perhaps someone could try it to see if they can resize it or not.

    Cheers,
    JT

    in all normal browsers you can resize the text size, regardless of what the page has set.
    also in msie its easy to overide the font-size.

    instead of trying to lock the user, you should rather use relative font-sizes like em or %,
