Message Board Width

Postby James » Wed Feb 25, 2004 2:47 pm

It is now 90% of browser window. Started at 100%, then was 80%, so 90% is a fair compromise - ok?

ok, i can live with this. :)

i don't have a complaint, but rather a suggestion... which is actually adapted (stolen) from sal in the other topic. i think it needs a border. it looks strange without a border on the sides. maybe like a pretty thin dotted/dashed one in css?

i don't see what's wrong with 100% - that way people can just size their browser to whatever size they want, rather than 90% of the size they want.

please make the fonts bigger james.

A style without the changes and a style with the changes would satisfy everyone.

i think the font looks intelligent. which is good. cos even if you write a load of crap like i usually do it still looks interesting to the untrained eye.

the problem is that the font is way too small if you're not using Windows.

yup, and it's still the same here. Microsoft decided to implement font sizes 25% bigger than the standard, and when you consider that our fonts are smoothed at operating system level, it makes them nearly impossible to read when they're made to be a stupidly small size. i've given james the info to fix it, i guess it's just a case of him getting around to doing it.

well, not really, no. i mean, windows is flawed and james is using it, so it's fairly understandable that he'd not be aware of the flaw.
