Default How to change the text size in internet explorer?

Hi. I m running windows xp servicepack 2 with internet explorer 6. I have all the upgrades from windows site. My problem is that suddenly all the text on the websites has enlarged and thats giving me alot of problem. It doesnt happen on all the websites but on most of them or in some websites its just a certain text which is bigger. I would really like to make it back to normal again and some help would be appreciated.

Click on View and there is an option for Text size. Go over it and just click Normal or small or whatever your preference might be.

If you have a scroll mouse you can enlarge or shrink the size of the fonts, in IE and FF by holding ctl and using the scroll. I have changed the font size by accident so many times, I used to go crazy, but now I know how to fix it.

Or you can use the latest version of Netscape.
