    Font size within pre tags

    I have noticed that font size within the <!t>[pre]<!/t> tags varies from skin to skin when using the Firefox browser. With some skins the text within the <!t>[pre]<!/t> tags is very clear and for others it is small and hard to read. Text outside of the <!t>[pre]<!/t> tags is easy to read in all the skins that I checked. I carried out the same test using IE and the font size did not appear to change.

    This can be overcome by specifying a minimum font size within the Firefox options though that can have implications on the display of other web sites.

    As an example the attachment shows the same bit of code using different skins, the left side is DarkGray 12 point and the right is Grey 12 point.

    Thanks for pointing that out Tony, I will take a look at it and try to make it more consistent.

    Tony,

    This should be corrected now. I made minor modifications to the skins that were affected, hopefully it does not result in too much yelling and screaming. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> If you find any other consistencies with this - or anything display related - let me know!

    Re: Font size within pre tags

    The <code>pre</code> tagged text in OldStyle12 sheet looks smaller now in IE6:
    <pre>But why? Simply changing the initial font value from Courier to Courier New?</pre>

    Ahh, the mysteries of CSS. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Font size within pre tags

    Probably, Jefferson - Courier New is a TrueType font, and Courier is not. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> I could change them back...

    I noticed the difference, but Courier New is fine with me - even though the text is smaller, it is easier to read.

    Re: Font size within pre tags

    No, actually, I post much more <!t>[PRE]<!/t> stuff than I read, so if everyone is happy with the size, please don't change it.

    I'm not inclined to change it, unless someone starts screaming loudly! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    It's OK Mark, this has nothing to do the pre tags, I was walking around barefoot and just stood on something sharp <img src=/S/crybaby.gif border=0 alt=crybaby width=15 height=15>
