Don't want DPI settings to affect MSIE

I recently purchased a new widescreen monitor, and as is always the case with newer monitors, they've squashed more pixels into a smaller screen, meaning that all the text is smaller. This is becoming a problem for my middle-aged eyes. What seemed like a perfect solution was to edit my display properties and change the DPI setting to Large (120DPI). Now everything's much more readable.

The problem is that since I design websites, it's important for me to see how the majority of the world will view the site. Firefox and Safari are rendering pages as they did before, but MSIE has increased the font size to match the new DPI setting.

Is there any way for me to tell MSIE to ignore the DPI settings and render the page "normally"?

Thanks for any help.
