Ok, I did not notice that, probably because it was never up in IE7 for me. But there is more going on with this page. I can raise the text to largest and still not be able to read the "Hot Topics" box. If I ignore the suggested text size, I can read. It seems IE7 doesn't use such small text, or perhaps a different style is being used.
I don't suppose you know of a setting for the smallest text to be used? Maybe I will play with the text style to see if I can limit the downside as far as font size goes.
I suppose I need to learn how to use the magnifier feature!
