I am currently working on a web page that consists of three frames. The main problem I am having is with the banner frame. I have the frame properties set to limit the size of the banner, and have used CSS to specifiy the desired font (absolute). The problem is, when I use a different brower, e.g. Netscape or Molliza, it allows me to change the font size. This causes the text to become to large/small, and screws up the formatting on frame (meaning some things hide).
The main problem is that I have turned the "scrolling" featurew off on the frame make the page look better, and now I just want to control the font size on the banner page so the formatting will look correct on any browser...any ideas?

It's a bug in IE currently that the user cant override the webpage fontsize. They are supposed to be able to do that.
Yes, don't make a webpage that breaks when a user does somthing as simple as change their to their prefered font-size.
If you give an url people here could possible offer a good suggestion or two in your specific case.
I too do not wish to limit the users' ability, but what choice do i have? If there is a way to capture when the users has changed the font, then tell the page to refresh with a different frame size.. then I would happily do it. Example--
For instance, have a variable for the banner frame hieght...
<frameset rows="VARIABLE,*" frameborder="0" framespacing="0" border="0">
<frame name="banner" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" target="contents" src="banner1.htm">
<frame name="contents" target="menu" src="menu.htm">
<frame name="main" src="intro.htm">
