The text is too small for me to read -how can I change it?

In Internet Explorer go to View > Text size and select Larger or Largest. In Netscape go to View > Increase Font Size. You could also try changing the screen resolution. Mozilla and Firefox users can alter the size of the displayed text by using Control and the Plus/Minus keys to increase/decrease the font size.
