Text Size Icon

Text Size, Fonts and Colours

Most browsers allow you to override the font styles, sizes and colours to give a plain layout view, that:

  • makes text black on a white background (or however your browser is set),
  • uses a style sheet created or by you or selected from a list of options,
  • puts all the information in one column (called "linearised"), or
  • leaves content images and removes background images.

In Internet Explorer select the "Tools" option from the main menu bar, then choose "Internet options..." click on the "General" tab, click on the button marked "Accessibility" and select the option you want to change.

In most other Browsers select the "Edit" menu from the main menu bar, then choose "Preferences" and select the option you want to change.
