I've altered the style sheet for normal Allpar pages and would like your feedback. (If you can't see a change, try refreshing.) Here's a typical article: Return of the seat belt interlock

I find the font a little hard to read. No serifs, and many of the individual letters have shapes that are similar to other letters, making speed-recognition of words less easy. The font also seems to have a bold feel, as opposed to a normal feel that uses occasional in-line bold as necessary.

Maybe a happy medium between the old size and the new? I think it's a bit big now.

It is bigger which makes for easier reading on my laptop but it's big enough to zoom out (80-90% instead of 100%) on my desktop. It is WAY better on my phone.

I chose Tahoma because I use it or Segoe UI as default in my browsers when a page does not specify a typeface.

The home page seems broken, though, there's a header and a footer and some boxes on the left but no content in the middle or right sides.

To me this seems easier to read, although I had no problem reading it before either.

Actually looks smaller on my phone, the same on my iPad.
Both iOS, safari.

I find the text on the link page a bit on the large size, but that's on a computer.

Yeah it's fairly tiny on a smart phone or iPad.
