Is there a setting in Internet Explorer where you can make web pages appear consistent? Some pages I visit are left justified; others are centered. I changed my DPI settings also to 150% but some web sites still display with small type. I've seen consistent displays in stores, but can't seem to replicate it. Of course on this computer I am using Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6. Does that effect my ability to change settings so that all web sites display consistently? Thanks.

Page display is a function of the page's html coding, and normally is handled by the page author. But if there is something you want to change about a given page, or all pages, you can do so by use of a local style sheet. IE supports one sheet, to my knowledge, but other browsers are much more powerful in this regard, and will support any number of custom CSSs. You can get some ideas at userstyles.org.

"I am using Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6"

Why haven't you upgraded to IE8?

Paul1149,
Thanks for the information. Was not aware of the CSS options.
mickliq,
I haven't upgraded to SP3 either. I heard there's an issue with wireless clients. I experienced that when I upgraded my laptop to SP3; it kept dropping the wireless connection. IE6 has been providing enough functionality for me; I upgraded to IE8 o the laptop (my test bed) and I didn't like it too much. I don't like the accelerators and all that other stuff. I shut those off on the laptop. I don't like unnecessary complexity; short and simple is the way I like it!
