I am sorry and I feel like a dumba**, but some of the blogs that I want to read are in the tiniest type I've ever seen (NOT SEEN) in my life!!! :?? Are other people able to read this????? Or is there some trick to pulling it up larger??

Told you I was dumb!! :shock:

I don't know what browser you're using, but in Firefox, you can pull down th e"view" menu and select a bigger text size. I'm sure there's a similar option in IE.

Do you mean how do they create the small type? Or how do they read it? You can create it by selecting the text and then change the font size which is in the drop down box above the message box. I can read it, but using the font size changer in your browser might work if that is the problem.

Testing...

In Firefox click "view/text size" and increase it. It makes it easier to see. IE also has this feature.

To view it larger with IE, go to View in your task bar and down to text size and then select Large or Largest. I have to do that often for many pages and I don't have very poor eyesight (at least with my glasses on LOL!) I have no clue why some people choose to write so small.

It's kind of like saying something very quietly or whispering..it's just another method, like smileys, of getting a point across.

I have a terrible time with small type on the internet. Try increasing the size by holding the CTRL and tapping the + on your number pad. You can decrease by using the - in the same manner.

Thanks Gladys!! Another neat way to keep from squinting my brains out!! I guess some people use the small type on their blogs to save space, too?? I don't know..I know it means in a whisper just in a sentence or so--but some whole BLOGS look like that to me!! Thanks to ya'll I can see ALL of them now! :heart: :happydance:

I like using small type because it makes me feel tiny and vulnerable. Well, sort of vulnerable, in an incredibly strong way. I use the small type to show people that I'm small in real life (well, short. I'm not small in any other dimension).

Some people consequently can't read my type. And I tell them to increase their browser viewing size, like everyone else here did. :D

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know why this person types small.
