Resizing Text


devil's plaything
On some sites (e.g., The Onion) changing the viewable text size on one page will correspondingly change the text size on linked pages. It would be great if this site could behave like that too!

ThanX for considering this ridiculous suggestion Scott.


Crotchety UI Nitpicker
I notice no difference in behavior between The Onion and any other site, including this one. My browser retains font sizes within the current tab, but if I open a link in a new tab/window, it will use the standard font size. Both iCab and Firefox behave the same way (and I'm fairly sure Safari does, too, but I don't use Safari these days).

It's funny that you should mention the Onion's handling of font sizes in a positive way. I used to be a big fan of the Onion, but I stopped reading it months ago because they redesigned their site in such a way as to be largely illegible with my slightly-bigger-than-average font size settings! *sigh*
