When you restart the computer or simply restart Internet Explorer, you may find that the font size in Internet Explorer or Outlook Express is different from the settings in that program.


To resolve this behavior, on the View menu, click Text Size, and then click a size from the menu.


In earlier browser versions, you are able to control the font size by setting the size in points. However, in Internet Explorer 5, you must use the font sizes available on the Text Size menu.
