Wilson Miner on Internet Type Sizes

A rather inter­est­ing and time­ly post by Wil­son Min­er about why he chose to make his body copy so big.

After years of won­der­ing why browsers default­ed to 16pt text sizes I’m start­ing to be con­vinced that long text real­ly is sig­nif­i­cant­ly more read­able on screen at pre­cise­ly that size.

One thing that I’ve been think­ing about lots recent­ly is the text size here on EW, I’ve felt it’s a bit small. I think this con­firmed to me it is, so I might be hav­ing a bit of a play at the week­end and a revi­sion of the site may or may not fol­low!
