Type size

Maybe its just me icon_smile.gif, but I think that a lot of the pages that have lots of information on it have type sizes that are too small. It looks like 7 or 8pt, and the most legible sizes for body copy is typically 10-12pt. It just is hard to read and strains my eyes...

    Are you using Netscape?

    Everything looks smaller on Netscape than on Explorer. I designed the site using Netscape then had to go back and redo most stuff because, alas, it's a Microsoft world out there.

    Like for example, (and again, maybe its just me) the "Tattle" page shows this clearly. The 1st article "Diary: Curly or Straight?" is in a size much smaller than the 2nd article "The Next Big Thing." This contrast shows that the larger one is way more legible. The letters in the first article all smush together.

    Same with the articles on the "Tips" page. Those are all that same smaller size.

    I don't mean to be picky, but its hard to make out what it says (and I don't wear glasses).

    Hope the examples help. icon_smile.gif
