of the page but I have now included a left-hand margin to the content area
and hopefully this will help alleviate some of the problems. The default
page text size is relatively large and can be resized with the browser.
Also, it has a contrast ratio of 12.6:1. I aim to make pages that are
accessible, not inaccessible.

I also had trouble as the lines in the text appeared at the immediate left
edge of my monitor with the window maximized.  Thus, some portion of each
first letter were difficult to read as pixels were missing or blended into
the bezel of my black monitor.  This would definitely be a WCAG Level AAA
type issue since Level AAA address line spacing and could be construed to
also include margins.
