Direct link to the prior list-mail-attached screenshot:

I've emulated what you did to add such context as browser font settings
panels, calculator, and same page opened in browser with no zoom applied:

To get fonts like yours required application of 300% zoom, and changing
browser font settings to not allow web pages to use other fonts.

You are able to see what you see there as you do mainly because at some point
you applied a defense mechanism called zoom, but also because the font
actually used by your browser is bolder than that specified by the page's CSS.

What other lists' archives are a problem for you? Maybe we can help you
change something on your system to make it easier for you. Based on the font
sizes in your browser UI, one would not expect you to need such big web page
fonts for you to be able to consider them "beautifully clear and highly
legible". Do you not have a problem reading small fonts in your non-browser
apps and TDE menus?
