Re: Colored background

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The problem with the fonts was not the type size but the style of font used.
I noticed this on my machine as well when I wrote it. I used an Arial font
10 point in size. I'm not sure why it appears smaller than, say, a Times New
Roman or another type of San Serif type font. Don't waste your time on this,
I will change my editor to reflect a more readible font - possibly 18 point
like a private post I sent Bill Allen for all of us who are going blind with
old age (I shouldn't laugh about this one, I found out yesterday I need a
hearing aid.)
Best to all

    Same here with Netscape 4.03.
    Bill Allen's messages where teensy blue on white last week, but are now
    Dennis's are teensy black on white.

     Interesting.  On mine, with Netscape 4.02 running under Winders 3.11,
Dennis' posts showed blue text on a white background.  Then I installed
Winders 95 yesterday, and now they come through in teensy little print.
What software are you using, Dennis?
