click on the - or + sign : http://jsfiddle.net/fDFNG/

<span>-</span><H3>HELLO</H3><span>+</span>

Open in new window

$("span").click(function() {
    var s = $("h3").css("font-size");
    var u = s.replace(/\d/g,"");
    if( $(this).text() == "-" ) {
        s = parseInt(s.replace(/\D/g,"")) - 1;
    }
    else {
        s = parseInt(s.replace(/\D/g,"")) + 1;
    }
    $("h3").css("font-size", s + u);
})

Thanks for the comment.

Few issues in your code:

(i)your code works only for H3 element.  But I want it for all elements. e.g  input, td , span, textarea, a , select ,th .

(ii)I  want font-resize  ie  either increase or decrease by an offset value .  if I input offset = -2 , then all font-size will be decreased by -2 .  similarly , if I input offset = +2 , then all font-size will be increased by +2 .


so, truly  I am looking for a function like this

function fontResize(var offset){

// resize font with the given offset value using JQuery

}

Could you please provide a solution which will fit my requirement .

Still having some trouble with the code. I have put alerts in each itration.

>>> s = parseInt(s.replace(/\D/g,"")) + offset;

Could you please check with this line. This line is cumulatively increasing  value of s ....like 19 , 21 , 23, 25 , 27  in the iteraion and as a result I get a very BIG font-size.

What could be the issue there ?
