Folks,
I built a little website using frontpage and html .
Now if I press ctrl and +  buttons together , it zooms out , and if i press ctrl and - buttons together , it zooms in . Now I want to disable these zoom in and zoom out features for my website .However later I figured out that almost every site has allowed zoom in and zoom out features. say for eg: u go to www.google.com and try these options , it will zoom in and zoom out everything . I somehow want to restrict that . Is there some way to deal with it .
pl advice

I do not think it is really possible..

With this being said:

But even if it was - I would never open for a second time a site where this is disabled. Sometimes you need to make the text bigger so you can actually see it. It is a BAD practice not to allow this - by using pictures or whatever method. What will people with problems with the eyes do in such cases?

In the IE browsers you could traditionally disable change in fontsize by specifying the font size in pixels
   font-size:18px

but as Venabil say it is NOT a good idea to do this.
