Feasibly Managing Text Size and other stuff

Sent by Rvlit on 21 September 2005 15:03

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post to any list of any kind so hopefully I did this right.

While I have been perusing the list for sometime, I am a relative newby with 
respect to using CSS.  I just developed my first XHMTL/CSS site have run into 
a couple of seemingly simple issues.  I am sure I have seen the answers to at 
least one of these but cannot find the emails due to the prolific amount of 
traffic on this list so please bear with me if the subject has already been 
beat to death.

1) If the text size is set on the browser to be larger than medium, it 
completely breaks the site.  Outside of using a fluid design, how do you 
manage this function?  Would using a fixed type size (such as points) fix this?

2) I vaguely remember a thread regarding the overflow of background color from 
one div to another when the following div was an image (only in Firefox and 
Opera; IE6 displays it fine).  Was this an inherence problem?  Could someone 
guide me to an appropropriate reference source?

3) Not sure if this a CSS issue but it cannot hurt to ask.  I use a small 
horizontal lined image for my main background and when the page expands to the 
point where the user has to scroll, it flickers something horribly.  Again, I 
remember reading something about this problem but not sure if it was on this 
list or not.

4) Does anyone know where I can get an extensive test template for logging CSS 
testing?  I would create one myself but am afraid I do not yet know enough and 
would miss some critical issues(especially from an assessability perspective).

Thanks so much for your patience and help.

If any one wishes to view an example of the above problem(s), please go to  I left the CSS embedded for
