    Scott, just so we're on the same page, the above option does not work on CC now unless you use the "ignore font size" option also. This is not the case with all other websites.

    I think we are saying the same thing, just clarifying for myself.

      Maybe Jeff should talk to John Lester over at the MGH Braintalk forums, since thy are also using the same software but have a larger default text size.

        Thanks McDuff. That's good to note. I don't have the reason as to why that's occurring, but my guess is that it's related to how the page styles are defined.

          About 12 hours ago, I increased the font size within tags to 11. Are things better for those who think that the font sizes are too small? Thanks very much.

                  Wise, yeah it is more readable now. I can be happy with this solution. 'Til my eyes get worse.

                    I actually have to take my glasses off to read this board, then put them on to read others. I'm supposed to wear my glasses all the time too. The font's too big and it gives me a headache.

                      Jadis, I notice your post used the size=2 option, did you try to do this or is this somehow defaulting for you?

                        Jadis and Davey, thank you so much for your patience and for tolerating the font changes. I cannot use my own browser to tell whether the font sizes are appropriate for everybody and therefore have been changing the sizes one step at a time for feedback.

                        We are making progress. It is clear that the critical variable is the font size within tags. When it is set to 12pt, it was too big for me. I changed it to 11pt and it was still a bit big but tolerable but others think that it is still too big.

                        I have just now changed it to 13px. This changes the font to the equivalent of 12 pt text on my browser. I am going to leave it like this for a little while and get some comments.

                        Wise.

                          The text is actually smaller now. (I prefer it this way, but other's dont.)

                          It might be beneficial to allow the users to control their font options via a few javascript functions that increase and decrease the font size and store the default in a cookie.

                            My humble opinion is the original size was great, the change to the large font was awful but now it's ok-ish, I dont feel like a grandmother reading one of those large type books

                            That's my feedback if it's worth anything. Running internet explorer at 1280x1024 resolution on a 19" lcd.

                              Thanks. I think that we may be getting close. Let's see what people think of the new size.

                                thank you Wise, much better. Any smaller than this and it may be too small.
