[face=Comic Sans MS]when you post your reply just above the box there is the font settings. Once I have written my reply I highlight the ones words or allof it and then select large. I usually preview it incase it hasnt worke[/face]d!

If the problem is from a reading point of view Binti, have a look to see if there is a little magnifying glass icon at the bottom right of this screen :) If you click on the little black downward pointing triangle (it's really an arrow) it will increase or decrease the font size and make it easier for you to read :)

I'm squinting too, It's the colour - It's making me recoil in pain.
My front doors this colour so I close my eyes when I walk through it, the hubby won't let me paint it, he reckons it as to be Green because it is Victorian.

He came home once with a bottle-Green Vectra, he's colour blind he insisted it was Petrol Blue....it was gone within a couple of months, he had to sell it before I torched it :)
Green belongs in fields,I don't do dark green, I hate it!
Rants over......................for now.

Thanks Horus. I never knew that.

And I love green. I think this shade is lovely. Not sure what you're all on about. :mrgreen:

I think that green is a colour you either love or hate :) I personally like brighter colours, I think the fact that this green is graduated across the screen makes some parts a bit dark for my liking. I do see from other peoples comments that the blue colour is more popular, I also find the red on the other site a bit too bright.

CTRL + does the same thing in Firefox. You can make it smaller again with CTRL -
