Hi,

I am currently rebuilding a huge website originally created using a nasty not very popular CMS. Anyhoo, I am almost complete and thought... I wonder how it looks in IE.... ARRRGGGGHHHH!!! What the F%$# is up with the massive fonts?

Is there a sitewide fix for this? Maybe something I could add to a .htaccess file or something similar?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob

Thanks for your input guys, but this site relies on two separate style sheets, therefore neither suggestion would help.

I think I may have found a solution though...

I simply added the following IE specific lines (see below) to the main.css and voila... all appears good, so far. I'll have to confirm by going through all sections but I'm fairly confident.

/* Hide from IE5-mac. Only IE-win sees this. \*/
* html td { font-size: 70%; }
/* End hide from IE5/mac */

Thanks for the effort guys.

Cheers,
Rob
