Stupid browser problem

OK, like the subject line says, I'm having a really stupid problem with both Netscape 6.2.1 and IE 5.5 (under Win2000). I don't recall changing any internet-related settings recently, but all of a sudden both browsers are displaying a lot of text in a much larger font than usual. Not related to any particular sites; it's pretty much the same for any sites I visit. Everything works OK, but it's just really ugly, and it's annoying me that I can't figure out why it's doing this. Anyone clue me in here?

In IE go to the menu bar View > Text Size and select one that does not have a check mark by it and see what happens.

If this corrected the problem I suspect you have a wheel mouse and if you inadvertently hold down the Ctrl key and then use the scroll wheel this will change the text size.

Also check these settings

Control Panle > Internet Options and under the General tab click on the "Accessiblity" button. On my settings I have "Ingnore colors" unchecked and "Ignore font styles" - "Ignore font sizes" checked.
