in reply to Size of text in replies when showing threads

OK.... As announced recently in Tidings, this change has been made.

If you like replies being rendered in smaller text than the displayed root, try putting the following in your on-site CSS. It seems to work fairly well, at least on some browsers, such as Firefox.

td.reply-body { font-size: smaller; }

    Heh, now when viewing a non-root node that has replies, the node being viewed is rendered in a smaller(-looking) font than that used for the (deeper) replies (both in IceWeasel and FireFox 3.5.5; for me both as tye and as tye , which use different themes and one of which has almost no custom CSS but neither have font-altering CSS outside of signatures and when AnonyMonk). That is unfortunate.

    - tye        

      This has been fixed. It was due to a CSS setting in /css/common.css, which means it was visible in all of the perlmonks "themes" (not including "No Theme", which has no CSS).
      Note that you may need to refresh your browser-cached copy of /css/common.css to see the change.

      The specific CSS code was:

      div.notetext { font-size: small }
      So if you decide you want to dink with the appearance of a reply when it is the displayed thread "root", use div.notetext.

      Thanks for noticing this, tye.

      Update: On a related note, the styling (font size setting) of the "Reputation" part of note display — that's the part that shows the ++ and -- buttons, or the current reputation if you've already voted — has been changed from a hard-coded <font size="1"> to CSS. The styling in common.css is:

      div.reputation { font-size: smaller }
      in case you'd like to override that in your Display Settings (or set it to something at all, if you're using No Theme).
