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!
