Increased font size on Tropospherical site scheme
Site scheme (Tropospherical)
At the moment, Tropo shows entry and comment text at 75% of browser default. This winds up being a bit on the small side, compared to other similar websites, which leads to squinting and headaches after lots of site-schemed page reading for people who don't usually experience these problems, particularly as Tropo Red is the 'default' people who are new to the site see. Increasing this a bit (I would suggest 0.85em) would increase readability
This came about as a result of some of the LJ-migration recently, where a number of people who are not usually photosensitive mentioned getting headaches after browsing on both Tropo Red and Tropo Purple for a while. I did some poking about in CSS, and discovered that the 0.75em size scales text down to a bit smaller than the size I usually see on blogs or LJ's old site schemes. It's basically in that range of 'just enough change to cause problems, not enough change to be immediately noticeable'.
I wrote a quick Stylish script to increase font size to 0.82em (along with a slightly smaller line height, but I think it's the font-size that's the core issue) and got feedback that yes, it was a lot more readable that way. 0.82em is kind of weird, and I'd probably just say round up 0.85em to be neat about it.
The problem with writing it as a Stylish script, though, is that any time someone is not at their home computer, it's back to site default (and I do realize that there are other site schemes, but most people I've talked to don't like the horizontal navigation of Celerity and find black-background even harder to read). Increasing the font-size just a bit should be a fairly easy fix (unless it's not in CSS styling? I haven't had a chance to poke through files), and it's not a big enough change to negatively affect users who didn't have the problem with the smaller font size while helping people who do.
Should be implemented as-is.
Should be implemented with changes. (please comment)
Shouldn't be implemented.
(I have no opinion)
