I like the look of the new site. I just wish that it didn't use such tiny tiny tiny fonts.

I second that on both accounts! I really love minimalistic layouts! ;-)

The fonts are barely readable (1600x1200 19" display) in both Konqueror and Mozilla.

It's a really bad habbit to use absolute font-sizes. Espcecially the body-font should be left for the user to set!

Have a look at

How's that?

What fonts do you have on your browser? What browser? What OS?

Can't really spot any difference, still tiny body-fonts.

It looks like Times Roman font which I haven't set my browsers up to use. I'm using Tahoma, verdana and ariel.

I'm using Konqueror and Mozilla.

Netscape uses a readable size and is not using time roman (guess it ignores css ;-)).

CS? What's that?

The fonts are tiny for me as well. I'm using Netscape 4.78 on FreeBSD, of course. I have a bunch of TTF fonts loaded including Arial, Verdana, Tahoma, and Times. I use Helvetica for my default font. I have to disable all document specified fonts to make the page readable.

Note, Opera under FreeBSD looks fine.

Huh? Using Netscape on this website the fonts are too small? But under Opera it's fine?

BTW: What resolution is your screen? (e.g. 1024x768) What size? (15")
