You can change the default text size of application windows by right 
clicking on the
desktop and selecting 'properties' and then the 'Apperance' Tab. You can 
also change
the size of desktop icons and other things.

Don't know about Netscape, but in Internet Explorer, you can change the 
text size
in the browser by selecting 'View', then 'Text Size' from the menu bar. 
Only five different
sizes, but you should be able to find one that works well in most screen
