Font display problems w/ flat screen?
Dear Forum Readers,
Hi all, I have a question re: a font display problem and am wondering if anyone else has run into this before.
I recently designed a web page using a linked CSS; the hover properties come up just fine and everything looks perfect on any standard pc with IE 6.
I have a friend, though, with a flat screen monitor. For him, the text takes up a much wider space than normal (looks like increased kerning) and takes up vertical space as well (i.e. other links below are pushed downwards). He is running the exact same system, browser and OS as I, with the only difference being his flat screen monitor.
Has anyone else ran into this problem? Is it a monitor issue?
Many thanks in advance for anyone's thoughts/solutions.

I have never known monitors to make such a difference, they tend to do what they are told. but then again, I have never used a flat-screen.
Is it possible there is another difference on your friends pc? For instance, is the font a standard font? Is it possible he does not have your font installed?

Here is the style I am using:
...like you, I've never known monitors to cause any problems nor sans-serif displaying other than how it should.
The monitor really is the only difference between our systems.
Anyways, if you have some ideas kindly let me know, or if there's another route I should pursue.

Well, thats baffled me. Nice, safe font. Nothing crazy in there.
You could always try using em or px instead of pt for the font-size, that might make a difference.
otherwise, without a similar monitor, I cannot think of anything else

Sounds good, I'll give px and em a go and see if that makes a difference.
Thanks again! Great forums, btw

Silly thought occurs!
IE->View->Text Size = whats his set to? you never know.
