    Making font size larger

    I see there's no way to make the chat font larger...I can't read that tiny font for longer than a couple of minutes, so I guess there will be no chat for me, sigh.

    -SAN, what program are you trying to use to access chat?

    Check out the FAQ thread which lists alternative IRC clients. I think you're using javachat? Which has limited options.

    I use mIRC, which has the option of changing the font.

    View (yes, weird place for it) > Font. The default system font only has one option, but there's several different options for the style.

    I use Chatzilla, and the option is under View -> Font Family & Size -> Make Font Bigger (or alternately, Make Font Smaller)

    Ctrl+ is the shortcut (or Ctrl-)

    "Make text larger
    Change the size of text and images

    Zoom increases or decreases the size of everything on a webpage, including text and images. To change or reset the amount a webpage is zoomed in or out, use these keyboard shortcuts:

    Zoom in: Ctrl + (Plus Sign) or scroll mouse wheel up
    Zoom out: Ctrl (Minus Sign) or scroll mouse wheel down
    Reset page size to 100%: Ctrl+0 (Zero)"

    That's true but the data in question isn't being served by the browser; it's being served by a Java applet, so that's not going to work on the Chat text.

    But it was a kind thought.
