Hi, Mike,

You've hit the nail right on the head!  Except that, in addition, the fonts 
are apt to be chosen for "prettiness" rather than clarity.  The exact font 
can make an enormous difference.

I did ask my power supplier the other day whether it was selling pictures or 
electricity.  (It likes small writing in pale green on pale yellow.  How on 
earth do even completely sighted people manage to read that??)

Thanks very much.
