Good idea, but when I type in 11.0pt, the system changes it to 11pt. And then I'm right back where I started.
Weird, I know!
I've made a new discovery about this problem, and perhaps Peter or someone else can help.
I believe that the problem I'm experiencing is similar to this question: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4173474
I saw the same problem with a small image that moved to the left in IE8. I also saw a strange problem with text wrapping around a larger image. Here is a screen shot of how it should appear:
and here is how it appears under certain circumstances:
As you can see, the text overprints a portion of the image.
The discovery is that the zoom level in IE8 makes a difference. I was looking at the page with my zoom level set at 95%. If I change my zoom level to 100%, everything is OK. It appears incorrectly if the zoom is set anywhere between 88% and 95%. I didn't test every other size, but I know that 115% is bad too.
This only happens in IE8. If I change the point size to something other than 11, it's OK. If I turn on Compatibility View, it's OK.
Has anyone else discovered this? Has it been reported to Adobe? If there is no immediate fix available, does anyone know of another possible solution? I really don't want to specify 11.1 point type as a workaround, unless there's no other option.
Sounds like it’s a more browser-specific problem than Adobe’s – what would you expect them to do?
I agree with Jeff. That may seem to contradict my answer in the thread you found but I have added a new post to that.
If the issue only occurs in one browser, then it does point to the way that browser works. By all means report it to Adobe but I doubt the issue is of their making.
Try different zoom levels on a number of web sites and you will likely find some issues.
