Good afternoon,

I have a specific area of text in a html webpage that i don't want to be able to resize upon browser
resize requests.  Basically the text needs to stay the same size even if the user goes to the view menu, text size, largest within internet explorer.

Is there a way to do this?

Try adding the below line in your html instead of just the <html> tag.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" >

Okay here we go,
you will have to apply style to body tag and div tag if they exists with something like font-size: 8px; and that particular area will not get affected then after.

This is same with this experts-exchange site too, as it has a style defined for body tag and if you try changing larger or anything that wont affect this site. Please do a test in an html with some text inside and by defining a style to body  and it wont change the font size.
