No. Absolutely not. Your viewer has the final say about how big her text is.

You can try to control this but then you can be deemed to be intentionally
discriminating against visually challenged people.

As often happens when tables are used for layout.

Yes this is a common problem with those who design to desktop publishing
guidelines rather than for the web.

There are many workarounds. The precice one needed for you depends on you
providing us with a URL to look at.

But that is presentation, and unconnected to the markup you use -- or
should use.

Looks like a list to me.

<ul class="nav">
<li>graphics</li> <!-- etc. -->

Using css, position it left, provide a margin for the content so it
doesn't overlap; provide margins for the nav items as you want. The
ribbon graphic that surrounds it is a background for the table, right?
So use css and make it the background of the <body> tag, positioned,
no repeat, scroll. This fixes the markup problem. This does not
solve the problem of the nav links spilling over the graphic. I'm
stumped as to how to solve that. I'll think about it and repost if I
come up with something.
