Description

The default font size in WebPositive is to small. Increasing the font size two steps, or changing it to 16 in settings makes the pages render more correct. Ideally it would be one and a half step (or 15,5).

I'm attaching 4 images;

  • Chrome-mac.png shows the font size in Chrome
  • WebPositive-font-14.png shows the default font size in WebPositive
  • WebPositive-font-16.png shows WebPositive with font size 16
  • WebPositive-settings-font-16.png WebPositive settings with font size 16

I've tested more pages and they do look almost correct with 16 pt. I think that 15,5 would be optimal.

Font size 15 is a better tradeoff than 16.

This website does not seem to show rendering problems with a non-default font size, anymore. I think we should stick to our non-standard size here.

Closing this, because: 1) Nothing in HTML/CSS standards forces us to use 16px 2) There is an user setting for that anyway.
