|Subject: Text Size, Font, and Colour|

|This isn't a bug, just a request for consideration down the line.|
I use IE, and I have 20/25-30 vision, use glasses for reading, and can't focus on anything closer than 18 inches - which is about half a meter? In other words, I have no near vision. Now.
I always have text size set to Largest. While headers, etc, on Pliny are fine, the default text is at the bare bottom edge of readable for me. Also, I cannot see any hyperlinks. If I wrote the text, and know there's a hyperlink, I can mouse over it to get the underscore. Otherwise, I will not see or click on a hyperlink.
My suggestion would be: either make the font one size larger, or make it darker, or use a different font that is easier for the visually impaired to read. Also, make the hyperlink colour more contrastive.
I think that doing this would mean that we got more casual readers who would follow links and browse longer.
