font sizes changed
Thanks to a discussion on the Information Systems Forum list, I started thinking again about how this site displays in your web browser window. When I set up the site originally, I was clear that I didn't want to specify the width of the page since people view sites in all sorts of different screen dimensions. That's why this page might look wider to you than some other blogs or web pages that only take up a portion of your screen. Or, if your screen is small, this site might actually fit on the page rather than be too big like some other sites.

Anyway, until today I was still using fixed text sizes. I had 39, 10, 15, 14, 12, 11 and 8pt fonts. This page explains that another way to specify sizes is xx-small | x-small | small | medium | large | x-large | xx-large so I converted the 39 into xx-large, the 15 and 14 into medium, the 12 into x-small and the 10, 11 and 8 into xx-small. This should give your browser more ability to re-size to fit your needs, rather that what I think things should look like.
