You may notice that the default font size on Grist (and Gristmill) has increased (starting today and covering the entire site within a week or so). This is being done in response to several complaints from readers and over a year of tireless advocacy (read: obnoxious nagging) by yours truly. The site should be more accessible now, more easily readable by a wider range of people. There will be more scrolling, but this being 2006 and all, I think people have gotten over their aversion to scrolling.

Let us know what you think — if anything.

(And props to Chris!)
