Graham,

I dont know why, but whilst I can see the new paint job/large test on my windows xp machine at home, the Apple Mac/safari at work still retains the old style even after posting and reloading pages.

What are you running?  I'm using Snow Leopard and the latest Safari and have two different issues.

My machine at home gas updated 100%

My laptop I' currently on has updated the colour scheme but not the font size

You may want to check your settings, FA. Looks fine to me ( Firefox 3.5.5 running on Windows 7, also checked w/Google Chrome on the same machine)

OK, back in the office and it has all changed to the new colours and giant font size, delayed uptake of the style sheets?

Style sheets tend to get "cached" - i.e. browsers don't ask for them every time.  A neat trick to force a complete reload on most browsers is to hold the shift key down when you click on refresh.

I'm keeping an eye on the "Font size" vote ... I'm not making any specific comment until it's completed as I don't want to influence anyone who has not yet voted prior to them doing so.

Not keen on the larger font. With my non widescreen monitor I lose part of peoples names.

I've got an inspector_blake, a TerminalJunk, SignalandTelegra and DevonTrains200 amongst others.

Once Phil's poll (above) closes - this evening - I'll be having a look and reviewing font size.  Good to have reasoned inputs too, Bignosema; that adds weight to your vote (if you have indeed voted for a reduction).

Voting has closed .... and there's no absolute majority in any direction though it has to be said that most people are saying that this week's size is too large.

I'm thinking "out of the box" and I'm going to be experimenting with a cunning plan which (however) I need to do in a few quiet minutes which ain't now.  I'll try a couple of ideas out queitly and let you know if they work / provide a solution for almost everyone / during the weekend,

I'm still fine-tuning, but I have added a couple of options.

If you like it as it was:
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?mystyleset=standard

If you like the newer (and larger font) look:
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?mystyleset=current

If you REALLY wanted Chocolate and cream:
http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?mystyleset=gwr

Once you've selected an option, it will stay with you until you change it again, or for a year if you don't change it.  I may add other combinations later.

Thanks for that, it's so much nicer to be reading standard sized font!

Thanks, Graham. I'm currently in Chocolate and Cream. How about a 'dynamic lines' version for Btline...?  Wink

Sorry, Graham - I've switched back to the old! I don't like the new one at all.
