Well just to clarify have you done this.

Control Panel > Internet Options near the bottom right of the window under the "General" tab is a button labled "Accessiblity". After clicking that are the "Ignore Font styles..." and "Ignore Font sizes..." checked.

I suggested upgrading to IE 6 because there is a very good chance that will solve the problem
without further digging into the details.
