    Its only of minor significance to me, (when I'm viewing RHP on my TV screen at home), but of much more significance to the visually impaired out there:

    Alas like many sites, the text on RHP takes no notice of the browser's 'text size' setting. Thus for those needing larger text (bad eyesite or mad TV setup), forum text is almost illegible, as the font is rather small.

    I don't know just how configurable the forum GUI is, but it would be nice if the font size was set to allow the browser to supply the size.

    And a happy new year to all by the way.

    At least in Mozilla, adjusting the text size works fine ("Text zoom" from the "View" menu), so the problem doesn't exist for Mozilla users.

    Like Pyrrho I use Mozilla (Firbird actually) and the text size can be adjusted easily by pressing CTRL and +.

    I guess you are using Internet Explorer? I don't know if this will work, but try:

    Open Internet Explorer.
    Select: Tools--->Internet Options
    Under the 'General' tab there is a button called 'Accessibility' - click on this.
    One of the options is 'Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages' - select this.
    Then try selecting the font you wish to use in normal way.
    Also try: View-->Text Size-->Largest

    I think in general the 'Accessibilty' options are aimed at users with special requirements.
    Sorry if this doesn't help!

    It worked a treat Laz!
    Thanks very much indeed!

    Often Ctrl and + works for IE too, but not here.

    I was getting to the point of using Opera for RHP forums
    as the whole page image can be expanded/reduced easily,
    but with the Opera bar and the RHP logo taking up so
    much room at low res, it wasn't working out too well.

    Thanks again folks
