Hi all,

Attached are screen captures of the WCAG-EM Report Tool, WAI home page, and Tutorials in the default view of my configuration.
(The images are the full height of my browser window. To make it easier to compare, I cropped the left side to the beginning of the main text and then equal amounts off the right side.)

* The WCAG-EM Report Tool text size is *much smaller* than the WAI page. (I have to increase the zoom to read it comfortably.)
* The Tutorials text is a little larger than the WAI page. (I sometimes decrease the zoom when reviewing it.)

So you can see why I think the text size needs to be bigger in the Report Tool. :-)

My configuration:
* Opera 12.16
** Zoom: 120%
** Preferences, Choose preferred fonts and colors for pages without specific style, Normal font: Times New Roman, 24 pt
* Windows Vista
** DPI Scaling: Custom scale 144 DPI (150%)
** (I think my "Theme" is based on "Extra Large Fonts", but I can't find the specific settings right now.)

Let me know if you need more info.
