This is from EmacsWikiSuggestions page. I don't agree or disagree with the suggestion, I'm just moving it here:

The new CSS is a very nice improvement, but the default font-size is set to 1.2em. This causes all fonts on the page to be 20% larger than the user's default font size. For me, this is jarring and annoying, causing me to have to scan more and scroll more to read the same amount of text. I have the default font size set to be comfortable for me, and web sites should generally respect users' default font size. So, please consider setting the body element's font-size to 100% in the stylesheet.

Thanks, I hadn't seen that - the only comment I'd had on the font size was that someone liked the larger size, and I like it also, but he has a good point - I tried it at 100% and it's fine with me, as it's easy enough to override.

I also like a larger font size. People over 40, stand up! :) People usually don't change the default font size of their browsers. I used to do that and gave up after a while.

Okay, I'll leave this open in case other people want to comment - I don't mind setting it either way, just depends what people like more. It might depend on the demographic - when I went to an Emacs meeting recently it seemed to be mostly 20/30 somethings. :)

One of my favorite features of Firefox (not sure if others have it) is that it remembers your zoom settings for each domain you visit - I have my default font set pretty large, so actually have to scale it down for some sites.
