Sometimes when I'm on a web page the text suddenly zooms in and magnifies the print. Did I do this with a mouse gesture? How do I undo it?

What Mac and mouse do you use? If you have a trackpad with multi-touch capabilities, a two finger pinch can zoom in and out, the same goes for the Magic Trackpad.

I have the iMac with the Magic Mouse. I know there are several gestures for that mouse.

You unknowingly lightly touched the mouse to cause zooming. Can't recall if there's a sensitivity setting in Preferences for this or not.
