This particular plugin is very handy for those visitors of your website which have difficulty in viewing certain font sizes, allowing them to resize the fonts on any given page of your website. The plugin uses jQuery in order to save the settings in a cookie which basically means that your reader will only have to change the setting once as long as he does not clear the cookies.

If you are not a big fan of auto formatting on WordPress (personally I enjoy the formatting part), this plugin is for you. This plugin will stop the automatic formatting for you so that you don’t have to deal with the alignment issues and other weird stuff. This also gives you the freedom of formatting the entire content yourself, the way you please.

Text Control

This plugin takes over control of all the text formatting available to you on your website or blog. It gives you a chance to browse through a vast array of encoding options and format syntaxes. You can browse Markdown, Textile 1, Textile 2, nl2br, and WPautop etc.
