This particular forum comes up in a much bigger font than anything else on the board. Am I the only one so afflicted?

You or your browser? Anyway I just know that my IE 6 browser is not so afflicted.

It's bigger for me too. I use IE6.

This has been asked before, but I don't think it was ever answered.

It happens for me, too, in Mozilla 1.7.7.

It appears that everywhere in the discussion fora except Bugs & Comments, the gunks_sm.css style sheet is used. However, B&C uses blind.css. An extremely cursory comparison of the two shows differences in font size specifications (and an unfortunate and confusing mixing of percentage and absolute pixel sizing).

Of course it's easily adjusted with the browser's font size increase/decrease controls. (ctrl+/ctrl- in Moz, ctrl-scroll wheel in IE, or via browser menu in both)

Ok, let me take a look and see if I inadvertently set a different style sheet for this forum. Not even sure that I can, but from what MarcC said, it certainly look like it.

Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom!

Thanks E. It was pretty annoying (in a very mild way, not like I lost sleep over it) that this one forum had a different font and size, etc than all the rest.

Now - if only we had someone who could fix the new "access" issues so quickly and easily....
