When the Ignore font sizes specified on web pages setting is enabled in Internet Explorer (via Internet Options > General > Accessibility), several elements in the PSI 2.0 user interface look quite flawed.

For example, http://schneegans.de/temp/secunia-1.png shows that texts might be cropped and thus become unreadable, and http://schneegans.de/temp/secunia-2.png shows a strangely rendered button when the mouse hovers over it.

Hi,

The PSI uses Internet Explorer to render it's user interface, which is why settings can affect it's visual and behind-the-scenes behaviour. There is no immediate way to avoid this. Is disabling this setting a problem?

Well, I have enabled this setting because I like larger than usual font sizes on web pages, and there are users that actually need larger font sizes on web pages.

Supporting larger font sizes aids accessibility. PSI currently lacks this support.
