Set the font size in View > "Text Size".

If the settings are not retained, try this:

click start > run > regedit.exe
goto the following key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\International\Scripts\3]

Set the IEFontSize values according to ur wish. The legal values for IEFontSize are 01,02,03, and 04 with 1 being the smallest, 4 the largest and 2 being the default medium font.
