Unreadable[edit]

This article can't stay the way it is. If the screen resolution isn't high enough, letters pile onto each other. Nationalparks 07:08, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

I know it needs to be improved, but so far the only way I've found to increase text size within the framework of Wiki is to use section headers, which obviously won't work for this problem. I just tried increasing the text size orginally, but it's almost as if the line height is hardcoded into MediaWiki, so all of the words would pile-up. We need a better solution, and we probably need someone better at Wiki syntax to find it for us. --Cyde 07:22, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

About fonts for large print books[edit]

The following sentence in the lead section read: "Among librarians Large Print is defined as print that is at least 16 points in size." This was changed to 18 points citing APH standards. But the APH isn't librarians. The first large print books printed were in 16-point font and stocked in libraries. I think the best thing to do is to take that sentence out altogether. When it was put in there wasn't as much content in the article. Now font is mentioned in the standards. StarryGrandma (talk) 02:09, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
