Size matters

Is my site too hard to read? I’ve noticed some alarming differences between various browsers and I can only guess what you all see. So, do you find my site font too small? Do you have any advice as to what makes for good font sizing? Keep in mind that I am using em sizing and not px sizing (convert). I also noticed a couple of other inconsistencies but if you see anything else, let me know.

    FF3 here. No problems with fonts size.


    /”Serenity..”/ is a tiny bit muddled since it is underlined. (Rotating ad – Left side)

    List below Pages / Catagories (sp!) / Feed me – are a touch difficult to read – since the colour is a bit close, but the “…” underline works better than the solid one.

    Always Opinionated

    Good point about the sidebar links needing better color contrast. As far as the Serenity bit (aka Amazon Store) that’s provided by them and I can’t control that part. Also, once I changed the sidebar color, the fonts started reading bigger in FF3 for me (as they should). Is the “SUBMIT” button too hard to find? I want to move it to the left under the “and you are?” fields but it won’t stay.

    I think it’s pretty easy to find. But then, I’ve had a lot of practise ;)

    Centred under the other fields would look good, but as it sits now (centred under the comment bit) sort of says ‘end of this section’.

    A bit more space around it, either by moving the other ad to right, or the ” down would probably help (assuming that’s any easier to do).

    I haven’t touched WP yet (but I have the week off, so hopefully I’ll know something about it by the end of the week)

    Looks fine to me. Using em scaling should mean if people set their browser to use “larger” settings it should scale the text.

    I think that’s what was happening but for some reason, my FF3 wasn’t reverting to the correct size after changing my browser preferences.

Have your say:
