in thread Size of text in replies when showing threads

Sadly tr.reply-body ul.indent { font-size: 80% } won't work, because that applies doubly to replies of replies so the font of those is set even smaller, so deep threads get very unreadable. The old font tag worked because it set an absolute font size, whereas the "80%" in CSS is relative to the parent.

    No, it wasn't. It worked because it only got inserted once. I feared this might get applied multiple times, hence the suggestion of adding a new div+class so that style can easily be applied and only once.

    Did you try tr.reply-body > ul.indent { font-size: 80% } ?
