In IE, it zooms. If you would add 'zoom:2;' to an element, IE 
would make the text inside that element twice as large.

What it does that solves the problem, is giving the element 
'layout'.

A drawback of the zoom property which I should have mentioned 
right away, is that because it's IE proprietary, it doesn't 
validate.

There's also another method which does validate, 
"display:inline-block;":
