Wow.  That's one I've never seen before.

What's the point of using that 100% declaration in the body tag?

Its been one of those days.

I have encountered a text resizing issue on my site using Internet Explorer
6 (XP and Win2K so far). When using "View / Text Size" and changing font
sizes multiple times on the same page, Internet Explorer crashes. Other
browsers seem to be fine.

I don't know if this is an issue with my CSS or a problem with MSIE itself.
I've checked Microsoft's knowledgebase and haven't found any mention of
issues with text resizing.

I declare a font size of 100% on my body tag and then use ems throughout for
all font sizes.


If people could visit the above link and let me know if they experience the
same problems, I would appreciate it. Any insights or thoughts on the causes
would also be welcome.
