    You can avoid using the website designers text

    To override website font and color settings
    If you want to have the fonts and colors you specify in Internet Explorer to be used for all websites, regardless of the fonts that have been set by the website designer, follow these steps.

    In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
    On the General tab, click Accessibility.
    Select the Ignore colors specified on web pages, Ignore font styles specified on web pages, and Ignore font sizes specified on web pages check boxes, and then click OK twice.

    Hope that helps...if not you can always change it back
    BTW: You may need to restart the Browser to see the changes

    Goto start > control panel > mouse.

    change the wheel setting from zoom to whatever else you want.

    TIP: in future, if you want to increase or decrease the font, hold the ctrl key while using the mouse wheel
