    I know this has probably been asked somewhere before. I did a search and came up with squat. Anyways, on my iMac G4 800mhz OSX tiger system some sites have CSS text issues. Not all sites but most with what I think is CSS text do not display the text properly.

    Here is a screen shot:

    font is too small?
    goto preference and adjust minimum font size

    Are you talking about the jaggy text on the section headers? Firefox has some "interesting" ideas when it comes to picking text sizes. You can alleviate the problem in System Preferences, appearance section. Down at the bottom, pick a smaller number for the "turn off text smoothing" setting.

    Yup

    Killer, thanks alot, it was the minimum font size thing. That has been bugging me for awhile. I am fairly new to Mac. I bought this computer for my daughter, then my windows box died. So now my daughter doesn't have a computer and I have this one. I like it and can't wait to be able to afford a real Mac.
