When I increase my browser text size on pages with AdSense skyscrapers on them, I'm seeing the ad text increase -- pushing the fourth add off the bottom of the skyscraper in some cases. This doesn't happen with the horizontal banners.

Can anyone else confirm that this happens with other browsers? (I'm using Mozilla 1.4.)

This doesn't happen with IE6 - no change in text size within the AdSense skyscraper.

Happens with Mozilla based browsers on the Mac... Same with the banners.

IIRC--correct me if I'm wrong I've never used AdSense--the skyscraper ads are displayed in an iframe. IE probably doesn't inherit styles, such as text size, into the iframe, while Mozilla does. This is just a guess, but if it is what is happening, then I would imagine that one could simply style iframe text as well to make it look right.

E.g., iframe[src*="ads"], IFRAME[src*="ads"] { font: 13px Verdana,Tahoma,Microsoft Sans Serif,Arial,Sans-Serif; }

Something to that effect anyhow.

Oh, where you talking about resize as in the zoom feature (Ctrl + +)? I just realized that mabye that is what you were talking about...if so, just ignore me, I'm a bit goofy sometimes. :)
