How to increase viewing / font size in IE

For my purposes, XP Mode performs well enuff -- I need it for one application I access through IE V6.

Problem is the size of the font is so small I need glasses to see. I increased IE font size to large and changed display option to 24 bit but can not adjust csreen resolution size to make "things" larger.

Any suggestions ?
