Hello Friends,
I have used <pre>&<p> tags wiht my text for alignment,color(texts are of different color )& i have set font- sanserif of size3.Using <pre> & <p> tag is must for me.
The required font size is got by me in 1024x768 resolution.But when the same is used in 800x600 resolution the text is bigger in size & the screen looks distored.what can be done.How can i make same coding for both 1024x768 & 800x600 resolution.
If i use <br> &   instead of <pre> & <p> tag the view is same in both resolution but this solution doesn't seem to fine enough for my problem.
If someone has a better solution pl.. do the favour immediately.
Ur's Friendly,
Sonara.

This is the real bugger about HTML. It is only supposed to describe the elements of the page in relative terms. It isn't designed to describe them in absolute terms. That's the nature of the beast.
That being said, you could try using CSS and absolute positioning. It would be messy, but you could also make the size of your elements (including <FONT>s) relative to the screen width and height.

without seeing your page, all i can do is give a general advice. dont set font size.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
