Setting font size for reading nodes

Good Monks,
I hope this is an appropriate place for this question. When I'm reading nodes, such as Newest Nodes or The Monastery Gates, the OP font size is larger than the font size of the replies. Is there some preference setting I can use make them the same size? (or maybe even larger than the OP size?) (I couldn't find one)

My eyes would thank you!

    If you have a good browser (Mozilla is a good browser) that handles CSS properly, put the following line in the "On-Site CSS Markup" textarea in the User Settings and you will see any text in your font-size of choice.

    * { font-size:100% !important }
      That worked great! I thank you and my eyes thank you!

    You could probably use custom CSS (an option provided for under User Settings), but barring that, the best advice I can give is to at least set the "Large Code Font" setting (found under User Settings). I've found that without this option set, the code, especially in inline followups, is way too small for me.


      Thanks for the suggestion, davido, but it doesn't seen to change anything - not even stuff in "code" tags. >sigh<

        the visible root node is in a td of class main_content.

        the replies are in table tags inside that same td.

        This CSS will do the trick
        td.main_content, td.main_content table { font-size: 14px; }

        He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    If you use the IE you can press the ctrl-key and increase and decrease the fontsize with your mousewheel. Other Bowser have similar features too.
      I am using Netscape 7.10 and it has that feature, too. I wanted to find an "automatic" way to do it.
