Martin, I think you overstate the "near-100% loss of usability for Mac users". Since my last posting, I tested the site (now at http://www.thereformist.com) with Mac-IE's default browser preferences, which sets the proportional font size to 16. It looked *just as good* as it would on Windows. Since most users don't mess with their browser preferences, the pages should look perfectly readable to a typical Mac user. Advanced users who DO tweak their pref's would also be more apt to change font sizes to their liking. I am constantly adjusting font sizes on my browser when viewing sites with too-small or too-large type. I gave this rant to basically say I think I have come up with a good compromise of designer/user control. I do appreciate your input and am grateful for it. Unfortunately, the nature of the WWWBeast dictates that it's practically impossible to design for consistent viewing on every conceivable platform. So I made a choice to give greater control of my page (i.e. liquid design and em-sizing of fonts) to the vast majority of users. That, I believe, IS a happy balance. Best Regards, Paul [If anyone else feels strongly about em-sizing one way or the other, feel free to chip in.] > From: <martin.p.burns at uk.pwcglobal.com> > > I understand the point of making allowing the user to have > control over fonts, but it's not just a question of looking 'not quite > as good' on a Mac; em-sized fonts are pretty much unreadable. > > So for a small gain for Windows users, you have a near-100% > loss of usability for Mac users, and that's not a happy balance.
