Try this first though: In IE, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced tab.
In the 'browsing' section, uncheck the option for 'enable visual styles on

Thank You Steve!
IE8 is fairly new on my system and recently the text box / font size was so small that it looked like each character was a dot.
I tried your suggestion and now text boxes are back to normal.
BTW. I am running window blinds on XP, so that may have something to do with the problem. There was no problem with IE7 and I don't think there was any problem with IE8 when it was first installed. (maybe 'patch tuesday' made some changes) When the problem cropped up I just viewed those pages with Chrome.
