Hi Folks,
I'm hoping someone can help me. For some reason, on one of my PC's, some
pages don't display properly when I am viewing them. For example on one
computer a page loads fine and on the other one, the page loads fine and
works OK, but doesn't display properly....

What I see is that text is 'wrapping' so that instead of seeing this text in
a box:
Testing testing

What I see is:
Testing
testing

Unfortunately, only the top of the second word is shown!

I know it's something I did, because I'm sure I changed something in the
display settings when I got this computer... But I cannot remember what I did
so that I can undo it!

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Geoff

First, in IE, check out View...Text Size
Then go to Tools...Internet Options...General tab, Accessibility - uncheck
all boxes there.
Last thing to check is the Display Properties - rt. click an empty spot on
your desktop and click Properties, Settings tab, and make sure the screen
resolution is set to at least 800x600. Click the Advanced button and make
sure the DPI setting is "Normal - 96DPI"
