Actually, I find this font size barely tollerable.
But seriously: ** WHY ** does everyone want to control my text size?
I already tell my browser what font and size I want to read. I know my eyes. I know my monitor.
What do I see in the CSS (firefox -> inspect element)
These paragraphs are at 16 pixels, and 1.4 em spacing.
That is overriding another declaration of 14 pixels and a 19 pixel spacing.
** You do not know the size of my pixels.
** I can use a point-size, not a pixel-size, to set font size/spacing.
(And yes, they do come out different).
And why, why, why does everyone want “Helvetica, Arial, Sans-Serif”? I don’t like H or A – yes, they have the same spacing, and similar style, and in theory, Helvetica was designed to be easy on the eye on a monitor – but in reality, Tahoma or Microsoft Sans Serif are much easier for me to read. (NB: I am not a microsoft fan boy. I am an apple fan boy. But these two fonts are done well.)
(Time to start adding in another set of Stylish exceptions/overrides)
