Hi Ronny,

Thank you for your comments. We are planning a number of significant
upgrades to the site to make it more consistent, easier to navigate, and
easier to find information. It will take us a while. We will ask for
feedback on redesign ideas, so stay tuned.

On the question of choices for changing text-style, I don't think that
the site should do that: you should set your preferences in your
browser. Indeed, we say very little about font styles and sizes on the
site so that the users preferences can be applied easily to the content,
without any loss in usability.

 _ Ian
