    New Format Newsletter

    Hi,

    I've just received my first newsletter in the new format.

    In general it looks good, but the only aspect of the old style that did not suit me was that the body text was too small (10pt Arial). The new format uses 9pt Arial - very bad.

    Do you not want anyone over 18 years old to read it?

    P.S. Please add date, headline, or some such to the message subject - just "W S Newsletter" is unhelpful.

    On my computer, at least, there is a much greater difference than that. It doesn't even look like the same font and it's a good 3 points smaller. It's nearly impossible to read - I had to zoom to read it.

    I've just realised why WS has done this. Any reduction in the volumes of data sent over the internet benefits all users, and WS has made a great contribution by reducing the size of every character it sends!
