yes, the guy has since confirmed that he uses Eudora and that the site 
owner just recently complained that the site text seemed much smaller 
since installing Eudora, too.

So it was that. Something to think about, folks. And the answer is to 
tell the user to open his/her registry after installing Eudora and reset

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\International\Scripts\3] "IEFontSize"=hex:01,00,00,00

to use 02,00,00,00

which resets IE back to medium.
