[General] choosing font sizes

One of the biggest problems I have with many blogs is that many of the templates provided use such small fonts. I can barely see the posts on many blogs. It's a fairly simple fix though.

Look in your stylesheet (the template area of your blogger blog) to find instances of font-size:. If the font size is in pixels (for instance: 11px), chances are that it is too small. The real disadvantage to pixel for font-size is that IE viewers cannot resize the text in their browsers.

Please use relative sizes instead of pixels for font-sizes!

Instead of font-size:11px;, use font-size:small;

Or if you really want to specify the font-size, choose to use em. That way even IE browsers will be able to adjust the size of font.

For more information on this, take a look at:

Just remember that not everyone can read tiny fonts easily. Be kind to your shortsighted viewers.
