How to keep IE's text size permanent?

I like to have might computer in a higher resolution, but need to have IE's text size set to Larger.

From time to time the text size will revert back to Medium for no reason. No specific websites trigger it back either.

Is there any way I can set my text size in Internet Explorer permanently?

Some pages specify an absolute font size. Go to Tools|options, click on "Accessibility Options." There is a check box to ignore font sizes on web pages. Select it and click back out. You can still control it via options on View menu, but the page has no control. (but if the page fixes other page size parameters, placement of boxes, it may render bizarrely)
