As a novice I hesitated before posting this msg. from an august MS-MVP but
here goes anyway!
A short time back I posted messages in several Newsgroups concerning
"frozen" fonts and font sizing but no solution was forthcoming - including a
response from you Gary.
However I did gain a clue from a Googled page which led me to the answer I
wanted. Maybe it would help your problem also with IE8b2.
It is very simple - Open IE / Internet Options and click the ACCESSIBILITY
button at the bottom right hand side of the dialogue box. Uncheck any
options in the resulting box and let us know if this fixes the font lock-up.

IE8 beta 2 has been released to the general public: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/int...explorer/beta/
IE8b2 appears to have significant incompatibilities with Windows Mail and
Windows Live Mail. In my WM, the read font reverted to Times New Roman.
Setting it back to Verdana had no effect.
