Text size problem in book reviews and other areas?


Am I the only one who has a problem with the font being huge in the book review area? It's like this in the Distro Reviews area also.

This pic is with Firefox 1.0. It happens with IE also and it don't matter if I'm in Linux or Windows XP.



Later,
Whitehat

Odd, I hadn't really noticed that before. I just hit <ctrl>+- to reduce the size.

So are parts of the site supposed to be real big like that or what? It seems like it shouldn't be.



Peace,
Whitehat

Why is my question just about the only one not getting answered?

If someone has something against me I would rather they just come out and say it.

Thanks,
Whitehat

Dunno, Whitehat. Fonts are huge for me as well (using FireFox-1.0).

My guess is that it's just a style sheet issue, but yeah - it really does "jump" at the user.

It is the stylesheets, not sure if anything has changed but a bunch of the mods one day during the summer I think it was, spent hours talking about it, having Jeremy try and fix them.. at one point they seemed good but yeah, all large for me as well. I just do what XavierP does and do a ctrl-( - or + ) to reduce or increase.

Just as a heads up, the issue is being looked into. When I have a better answer I'll update this thread.

How do things look for everyone now (may require a shift-refresh)?
