What's going on with the fonts?

Posted on 09/27/2001 3:52:09 PM PDT by steveegg

What happened to the fonts around here? Seems when I look at responses, things are blockquoted and in an odd font.

I wonder if this new format will automatically close open tags?

I'm pretty sure these are the new format changes (including filters to prevent open tags).

John can't hear you; he's too busy playing with the font. ;^)

I made a few changes to the software. I'm wrapping all text in a pair of blockquotes, and am experimenting with the new font. I think it's easier to read. I also extended the em tag to do yellow highlighting.

Also, if you blockquote some text, it will appear indented and in italics. Thanks to the many wonders of cascading style sheets.

You're right. I thought it was something I did and I've been trying to undo it on another thread. Now I find that it is everywhere.

The new font is easier to read, but it's a little large. Can you reduce it a point or two? (I like the indentation, except those parentheses look funny.)

Well, I like not having to fix someone else's open tags. But both the yellow AND the font are ugly.

I like the indentation. Makes things much nicer. The new default font I could take or leave.

Agree; it's too big - needs to drop a point or two. And Times Roman is much easier to read than whatever this is at the moment.

This is a terribly feminine default font. I'm not a big fan of the indent either.

Don't reduce the font size. I don't want to have to go to 2.0 reading glsses. Change the font back to Times if too many people have problems with this one.

How much would we have to pay you to tone down the highlight color?

Maybe something in a light gray?

(great work on the tag filter stuff)

Thanks a bunch.

Perhaps the default font settings have been changed."

Perhaps been moved to a larger, easier to read size.

Or, it just makes it more fun.

I'm still getting Times New Roman. I must not have the new font installed (which, if reports are accurate, may be a good thing for me).

Okay, I commented out the Bookman Old Style font. I'll bring it back with a custom style sheet later in the game. I personally liked it.

But if you piss me off, I'll change it to Wingdings. :-P

I used to really enjoy squinting at the previous default font. This one seems too big & freindly.

You mean if you want to highlight you just type EM?

And if you want to indent, it automatically puts it in italics with this blue line in front?

But you don't have to close tags?

I'll give people the ability to customize the style sheet, they'll be able to use anything they want.
