Can you make the default font larger. There are a lot of older folks like Dave and I that have a really hard time reading the super small font.
Thanks,

Control plus '+' will increase font size on any active window. On apples, Command plus '+'

In Internet Explorer, click on view > Text size > [your choice]. This will change it for all pages.

To select a better font, click through Tools > Internet options > (General tab >) Fonts > [Pick one on the left for general text], [pick one on the right for fixed-width text].

If you are using a different browser, let us know.

If you are using Windows, try out ClearType. On a good screen, you'll probably love it. On your TV, you may not.

Depending on your TV, you may have less eye strain from the laptop's smaller, but crisper screen. I'm on an 11" screen at 1280x800 pixels, and it is much better reading than connecting the same computer to my 1080p projector. Partly, it is the crispness, i.e. no focus issues from the projector, and partly because I can easily adjust the brightness to my changing needs.

That wierd the text size doesnt change for the PP defalt font, but it does make the adjusted font even larger. James will have to fix this...
