Is there a keyboard shortcut to quickly increase or decrease the font size of text when using MS IE?

So many pages have fixed size fonts now, so it often does not work, but if you hold down the CTRL key and move your mouse wheel up and down, that will do it.

thanks for the reply. Yes, I realize that CSS stylesheets can set the font size, but there are still some that can be changed by the browser.

Now, how do I do this without a mouse? ie, using a notebook with a touchpad? Holding Ctl and using the up/down scroll keys does not seem to work.

tnx,
