    As far as I can tell, HNTFSH complained about the font size in the OP using the same font as the OP. So I don't get what he was complaining about. The fonts look the same size to on my computer and iPad.

    On a related note, did you all know you could have your browser enlarge the font for you? You don't have to depend on others, you can take control of your own vision!

    On a Mac, which is what I have, you press the command-shift-plus key and presto! Everything is bigger! Or you go to the "view" menu and select "zoom in"!

    Or you can set the default font size and presto! Everything is bigger all the time.

    Not sure how to do it on a PC, but something similar works.

    At least now we know how to talk about HNTFSH behind his back AND in front of his face!

    Or!?> You could just let them older guy's with blurred vision put their specs on?...maybe make them 'look closer'?..Or perhaps just let them figure out how they get the font the way they want?..Either way, ...telling them how to fix it ,ain't gonna teach them?..merely show them a way they can resolve that particular issue at that moment in time (if they wish to ?)....Most will just do what they have done before (that works for them!) anyway?> so ..that leads us to - ? ..''CRYPTIC''? you say?..Ha! ..that should answer a few of your questions?..
    ......
    As for what it has to do with the OP's request?.....Nothing!..lol

    I started out with a Kaypro, then went to DOS on a PC, then migrated to Windows when that came out, but got tired of viruses so switched to Mac OS X.

    I try to read the computer before me, but sometimes I can't because the font is too small, or worse the color scheme hurts my eyes!

    I wonder if these programs are compatible with Lardy, or if Rex Carr would approve of them?

    I don't know?. But I am sure it has totally confused the OP? Who started out confused with terminology and jargon? So You may have achieved something after all?

    The font in the original post was this size. A keener eye might have assumed that was the 'edit' behind the OP's 'edit' after reading the post.
