I find the font sizes for the PHP.net website to be unusually small when using the Mozilla web browser version 1.0 on Mandrake Linux 8.2.  This is particularly so for the PHP online manual.

I've noticed the stylesheet specifies that most styles reduce the font size to 75% - 80%, and I wonder why that is.  In effect, this sets the font to be 3/4 of the client's desired font size, so it looks comparitively small.

I would suggest a comparison between similar sites to determine the optimum font sizes which would minimize the user having to alter browser settings for each site that is visited.  cf. php.net with mysql.com, for example.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit http://www.php.net/support.php as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Looks just fine in Mozilla 1.0 on Linux. I recommend increasing the font size in your browser if you find the fonts used too small for your liking.
