( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Moderately observant readers will no doubt have noticed that, when viewing any "thread" (a node and its replies), the replies are displayed in a font smaller than the top node. It is being done with a hard-coded <font size="-1"> in HTML.

This has been done since time immemorial, but we're not ones to be enslaved to tradition. There has been some commotion, over the years, to eliminate this hard-coded font size setting. Users who want to do something special with their font sizes should be free to adjust their on-site CSS to do so.

Before we eliminate this rather inflexible style enforcement... Does anyone have any arguments why it should not (or should) be done?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
