...and a second point.
A little homework exercise for y'all.
Go through that list of websites I listed on my first mail. Try viewing
them three different ways:
- With no changes to your default settings.
- Selecting your preferred fonts. In this case, point-specific font
specs or absolute / relative font specs are going to make the chosen
fonts larger or smaller than preferable.
- Using the stylesheet I provided.
Report back comparing and contrasting the experiences.
