What is your font suggestion?  Remember I didn't write the mailing list
archive software, so I am unaware of the design decisions behind these
strange selections. ;-)

When I did not explicitly set "small" (i.e. the CSS default of "medium"
was used), on my unmodified Firefox installation the text was so large as
to render it unreadable without significant effort.  Perhaps the
difference between my system and yours is related to the font issue?

As mentioned above I'm not the designer of the ezmlm-archive software, so
I don't know.  Suggestions for fixing it are welcome.

In fact, if you want to draw up a replacement style.css incorporating your
changes I can test it here and let you know what I see and if there are
issues from my perspective.
