I'm not sure. The easiest (I'm not a designer) would be larger font
size, but that doesn't make a lot of sense in page layout terms. From
my side I'm going to spend some time in the remainder of 2013 on two
relevant things here: stats and a couple of JSON things: first the
JSON-LD context file, second a JSON-LD dump of the schema.

I've made some experiments (with Gregg and Sandro) on D3.js
visualizations, e.g. see
http://danbri.org/2013/SchemaD3/examples/4063550/hack3c.html ... what
I'd hope is that a JSON(-LD) view of the schema will make it easier
for people to experiment with alternative ways to navigate/explore.
For example http://danbri.org/2013/SchemaD3/examples/4063550/hackathon-schema2.js
is quite interesting as an example format since it can be understood
as a tree structure by D3.js, and carries RDFS extractable as
