    Isn't it funny that this forum, for Surface owners, is so difficult to read as it doesn't fit nicely within the available window. To zoom in doesn't help, as then you have to scroll left and right. Mad right?

    Or you can try to adjust it. The website is perfectly fine on normal desktop/laptop setups with larger monitors. Surface has tiny screen with high resolution.

    Assuming you mean IE on an actual Surface. Up to 175% doesn't force scrolling for this forum. This isn't just a forum software accessibility issue but how web browsers deal with zoom--Opera, for example, has a forced "fit to width" mode that handles super-zoom beautifully. IE is usually okay. On WinRT we're stuck with IE.

    Under IE Internet Options > General tab > Accessibility under Appearance (bottom) > Ignore font sizes specified on webpages.

    Then in desktop IE > press Alt to bring up the menu bar > View > Text size. I'm not sure if these settings are copied to Metro IE, which has its own Options > Font size section.

    Indeed sir you are correct. Just played around in the options and it now sits much better. Thanks for the tip.
