I want to keep the font size on my home page fixed. No matter what size visitor has set in view>>text size, it should only show the size of fonts I have defined.  Thanks.

Set up a style sheet, define the fonts in pixels. Use the styles you define in the style sheet.

If they REALLY want to override your styles they can, but just changing the text size the way you normally would doesn't have any effect.

By using the property !important, you're fixing the size of the text as far as you can. As webwoman said, the user will always be able to change the text of the page, if they *really* want to and know how. This way is pretty safe though:

H3 {font-size: 16px ! important;}

Hi webwoman & klykken. Thanks for your suggestions.  I tried them but still able to change font size by going to view>text size. What I want to achieve is at You can not change font size by view>text size for their pages.  Thanks.

this will work on browsers that supports css. Even works on NS 4.7.

Which browser are you testing this on?
The way webwoman explained this to you is exactly how Projectseven does it.
