BTW IMHO the current MSFN theme is not at all that bad , the only really senseless setting is the "quoted" text having been dimmed/faded into the background to such an extent that is HARDLY readable (if readable at all).
It really hurts my eyes.
Agreed that this one at MSFN is getting better, and especially agree about the quotes!
The quotes are the biggest headache but there is at least one more issue. The fonts have become smaller compared to the old theme. 11px fonts are used in many places where the old theme used 12px fonts. I personally prefer larger font sizes (there's a reason why 100% font size for browsers usually means 16px) but apart from my personal preferences I can't really see any valid reason to use anything smaller than 12px which itself may be difficult to read, especially for people with not-so-great eyesight
Font sizes on websites should be defined in % / em instead of px anyway...
that rule may worth for phisycal (or whatever its spelled)- solid books
but for monitors you can't tell me that THAT is practical
Maybe not practical but long lines are really difficult to read... Just have a look at my website in its current form (I'm preparing a new version at the moment):
There's no fixed width set so it will be stretched as much as possible. Frankly speaking, it looks awful on a wide screen display and the text is difficult to read, isn't it?
