Hello all,
I have a site that I use for testing various things : http://arbitrarytimes.com

Now, this template is a few years old and could do with updating (CSS wise).

So I wondering what you thought of the general font size and style?

Here is a page with more text: http://arbitrarytimes.com/eastern-tales/29-the-mustard-seed


Thanks! smile.gif

Indeed... and a long time ago. wink.gif

Getting back to your point about enlarging text.
Can you please tell me 'how' you are enlarging it?

It's just that when I do it using the CTRL+ keys, it scales very nicely.

Thanks again. smile.gif

At least gecko based browsers (FireFox and so on) are still capable of enlarging only the text and leave images alone. The way all browsers used to behave. In FF you can tick "Text only" under Zoom on the View menu. Don't know if Chrome can do it. I doubt.

Most people will probably use factory settings and zoom. Then there are guys like me that don't like zoom. Seldom do I need the images to be larger unless I want to peek at some detail and then I prefer to enlarge only that image. I just want to size the text up and down if it's too small or big for my liking and I hate when things move around when page zoom is used. So there! cool.gif

Also, a person with poor sight may configure a minimum font size that makes the text too large for your fixed size boxes from the start. A good rule is to never limit the height of a box that contains text.
