Hi,

I want to have a text formatted the way I want, with the font I want.
I thaught :
<PRE>
<Font face=arial size=2>
a
z
e
r
t
y
</Font>
</PRE>
Would do the thrick.
Yes and no :
In Explorer all works fine, in Netscape this gives me one size smaller than the size I want.
How can I have preformatted text in the same size in BOTH netscape and explorer?

Thanks,

HI,
You can solve this by using Cascading Style Sheets (css).
Define two css, one with 10pt for IE and one with 11pt for NN.  In your file first check the type of browser and based on the browser link the style sheet.

Like this...

<Script language='javascript'>
var app
app=navigator.appName
if(app.indexOf['Microsoft']!= -1){
   document.write("<link rel=stylesheet href=ie.css>")
}
else
{
  document.write("<link rel=stylesheet href=nn.css>")
}
</script>

Hope this helps you.
GOOD LUCK...:)

HI,
You can solve this by using Cascading Style Sheets (css).
Define two css files with class name "fontsize", one with 10pt for IE and one with 11pt for NN.  In your file first check the type of
browser and based on the browser link the style sheet.

Like this...
<html>
<head>
<Script language='javascript'>
var app
app=navigator.appName
if(app.indexOf['Microsoft']!= -1){
  document.write("<link rel=stylesheet href=ie.css>")
}
else
{
 document.write("<link rel=stylesheet href=nn.css>")
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<pre><font class="fontsize">
a
z
e
r
t
y
</font></pre>
<body>
</html>

Hope this helps you.
GOOD LUCK...:)

Hi,

Thanks for the comments,
so far I love the SPAN tag the most :
quite easy and I don't need binoculars anymore to read my <pre>text in Netscape.

Now what I don't get is : what is this SPAN tag doing exactly?
And why is
<FONT SIZE="2" face=arial>outside the <PRE>tag still different from
<SPAN STYLE="font-family:Arial;font-size:1pc">inside the <PRE>tag?
Or better asked : how do I get my text inside <PRE>look like the text outside <PRE>?

I tried like you said 2pc, but that looks like a real big font compared to font size = 2, both in Netscape and explorer.

The CSS, is it also workable in Opera, and what is it advantage over SPAN tag?

Thanks,
