Is it possible to make the font smaller?

Smaller? So that we have to enlarge even more?

Why?

Come out at about 70 characters and 10 words per line in a story on my browser, with a decent line-spacing and a readable font. Which fits well enough within the standards for good readability.

You can always override the stylesheet for the site in your browser settings . I could rough out an override if there are many annoyed people.

If I click on a story on the front page, the story body text on the page displays as Helvetica 15 on a stock Safari screen. That is pretty big.

On the comments editing page, the text is showing as Helvetica 11, which is sort of small--but ok for me.

The text "The Trillion $ Coin" on the right panel displays as 14 bold with wide spacing.

How many words per line are those stories?

Yes, some of the sub-pages need the fonts tweaked up a bit.

Looks like about 90. On the coin story, this much is on the first line with just a bit of space left:

I've been reading about and advocating the Trillion $ Coin option as a means of avoiding

I'd argue that most web-site fonts are far too small.

Is there a subtext here about ageing readership?

Also there was supposed to be a line feed after the word "big" in the previous reply...

Well spotted. It's not wrapping the first bit of text in
