I installed Win98SE yesterday (up until now I had been using Win95B) and things are running smoothly, except for one annoyance -- Microsoft Internet Explorer (5.x) seems to be using very large font sizes when displaying web pages. This causes the layout of some web sites to be skewered (e.g. www.abcnews.com
-- the whole left sidebar contents are pushed down because the text and graphics couldn't fit horizontally) and the web sites that don't have word wrap will force horizontal scrolling (i.e. www.northernlight.com
-- I have a horizontal scroll of about half an inch because the font pushes everything past the right border).
I'm currently using MSIE 5.01, with all the recommended and critical updates. I also used MSIE 5.01 under Win95B (downloaded separately, unlike Win98 where it is built in) and did not have this problem.
Any ideas? Setting my desktop font size to "small" helps a bit, but it still isn't normal (and I prefer large fonts on the desktop).
Any help is appreciated!
