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?
