font preferences consistent across sites! April 25, 2002 7:08 PM   Subscribe

As of some time this afternoon my font preferences from MeFi are working in MeTa also. Is this new or is IE just acting up again? I'm in mac OS 9.2, IE 5.1

It's doing the same thing in Opera. I just can't remember if it's always been like this in Opera. God I hope it has not always been like this and I'm just noticing now. Paris has posted in the past about strange things happening to font size in IE 5. This is the first time I can remember that my preferences have carried over to MeTa.

Okay, I realize this is completely pedestrian, but has anyone else had this happen?

it's not a bug, it's a feature.

your font preferences should be shared among the two sites if you are logged into both. Did they not work this way in the past?

Matt, they did not. My font prefs worked in MeFi but not in MeTa (I swear) even when I was logged in. Like I said, this was happening in IE 5.1, mac OS 9.2.2 up until yesterday afternoon.

modofo--of course it's a "feature," it had just never worked before.
