I'd like to but your font

I'd like to but your font sizes are too small for me to read. Do you not want visits from old folks like me with weakish eyes? If you do, then why purposely over-ride the font sizes I have set in my own browser?

Not interested in old people

Not interested in old people visit the site, they should all be in retirement homes where they belong! That was a joke, only kidding. I'm not very young myself. I'll try to sort things a bit better. :bigoops:
I think most of the font sizing is in ems, any specific place u have issues? Any advice you care to offer? The body text size is set to 62.5%.
May I ask which platform and browser you're using?

I was told that there difficulties on Linux systems especially with the dropdown menus. I wondered whether anyone had any ideas for a fix?

Cheers
Andy

So you've decided that my personal preference in font size doesn't matter and you're going to force me to look at text just over half the size I prefer.
Not very friendly of you...

Beside the point. CSS allows you, and best practice is, to write pages that work on all platforms and viewport sizes. Platform shouldn't matter at all.
