Huge nectscape fonts on particular websites

Hey all, I'm in a pickle.
When i use mozilla ver 1.2, everything works fine, but when i use either mozilla 1.4 or netscape 7.1, on some websites, there is some really huge font. and its not the hole site, just some specific parts of it. I looked at the source of the site and it shouldn't be that big. I'm using redhat 9. I'm not sure where to go to change this. Ive been in the options for fonts on the browser, but everything looks fine there. If i want it smaller, the rest of the regular text is way too small.
has anyone heard of this?

well, I wanted to make sure that your post doesn't end up with no responses (0 replies | 8 views).

I am not sure If I will have an answer for you but as it seems like this is pretty tough to resolve.

How about you just use another webbrowser such as Galeon.

I typically have to do CTRL + 8 sometimes which increases the font size by 10% I believe. However, whenever I want to reset it back a CTRL + 9 zooms it back into a 100% view.

You should give Galeon a far as I've heard it's one of the best browsers (GNOME) and I personally can't complain!

Hope this helps!

Go to 'Edit - Preferences' on your browser
and Under Apperances - Fonts

select 76 dpi for "allow documents to use other fonts"

Hopefully this should solve your problem
