Can the sites text size be increased back to its original size? The current small size makes the site almost unusable for me.

The quick fix is to hit ctrl + (any browser but IE, which can only sometimes change font size via the menu View -> Text Size). I bumped it down to a standard 12pt font because I thought the previous 14pt was too large.

Anyone have a vote for the current 12pt or 14pt?

I'd vote for "100%". Most guidelines to web site accessibility recommend not setting font-size for body text at all (or to "100%" which is basicly the same). That way the browser uses the size set in its preferences, allowing each user it set it to the size they prefer.

Yes, please do the 100% thing. I've been manually changing the text size via my browser options but that makes every other website appear larger.

14pt is definitely better then 12 if you cant simply put 100% to default for a users local browser settings.

Many modern browsers allow you to set a minimum font size in their preferences. Once done, all text is the correct size to read. But sometimes it gets chopped off size the web designer set a fixed size for the block containing the text. Google Ads is good at this.

I just tidied up a bunch of the font size CSS, let me know if you see anything unreadably small anymore.

If you do, please send your full browser version (from Help -> About) and a screenshot to
