  3. I must agree with the first comment, this is making the text bigger. I'd love to see this example with a slider that changes the text size.

  6. Its a great script but it would really help beginners if you explained where it went on a page. I cannot work out what to do with it now I have downloaded it. Tried inserting it in a page but nothing functions
