Even when we were getting input on the redesign, it was obvious that readers who used Internet Explorer were having more glitches than others. Reader Davin found a fix that may help those of you who are still having trouble (that means you, craazyman, please try this at work):
Just wanted to let you know I managed to fix the problem with Internet Explorer 10 displaying NakedCapitalism with a smaller font. I think the problem is that the normal delete cache, browsing history option within IE doesn’t delete all of these files (I found out a few years ago there can be a raft of temporary IE files still lying around after supposedly deleting everything).
I used a utility called ‘Index.dat Analyzer’ (index.dat is where IE stores temporary files) to find and delete all temporary IE files cookies etc. Afterwards NakedCapitalism happily rendered correctly with the proper font size. So I think one of the temporary files not deleted by the IE delete history option caused the problem with the smaller font size.
Others reporting a lack of success with the font size after deleting their cache may be having the same issue.
