Hi all,

As part of our redecorating we changed the font we used to Arial to be consistent with the rest of the site. We didn’t change the point size of the font, although Arial is a more compact font than the previous one so you’re right it does render as smaller.

What we’ve just done is increase the point size for the main reading and posting areas so it’s noticeably larger :) Specsavers won’t be happy with us!

Hope that helps and thanks for the feedback as always.


Arial used to look ok on old screens using smaller resolutions but there’s something about it that’s a bit “not right”.

I think it’s something to do with the t and the f being so very thin.

Of course, it’s entirely subjective
