(back) Subject: Re: Favs list From: Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Date: Mon, 19 Oct 1998 02:50:05 -0400   Hey Guys!   Without being too picky, there are a couple of posters on pipechat-l that are using tiny fonts.   I have had to increase the size of my own font in order to be able to read it at all. - Can the guys who are using the small font size make it bigger for those of us who have low vision?   As it is at present, I simply have to delete them unread, for the print on my screen is way to small to read.   I hope you do not take this as anything other than a plea for readability.   Bob Conway
