Discriminating against those with less than perfect eyesight!

I find posts much more difficult to read--funny-looking, sans serif typeface and way too small for those of us who don't have healthy 20 year-olds' visual acuity.

I couldn't even finish a post by Melanie that normally I'd have "devoured."

I'm not even comfortable reading these words as I type them.

  1. Before you say "discrimination," try this on your browser... Click on View, go down to Text Size, and choose a larger text size. Voila! Problem solved.

      1. If you happen to use Mozilla Firefox just press Ctrl + or - to increase or decrease the font. If you do not try it its great.

        1. In Opera, hold Control and scroll the wheel to change text size. And like Firefox, if you haven't tried Opera, you really should. Most of the spiffy things about Firefox originated in Opera, and Opera takes up way, way less memory to boot.

            Holding Control and scrolling the wheel also alters text size in Internet Explorer.
