I know exactly what Lisi is talking about. There's a growing trend that's 
moving away from function toward flash. Web designers are doing three things. 
1. Using all websites as POS sites (check out verizon's nightmare of a site). 
2. Using pale, small fonts against similarly coloured backgrounds (grey 
letters against a white bg). Using fonts that are "cool" rather than legable. 
3. Designing websites so they can be used by mobile devices as well as 
standard screen sized machines. Rather than building two.

This trend is expanding to other things. All of this leads to unreadable 
pages, emails etc. 

BTW, I have kmail set to show plain text as default. And I take over the fonts 
on pages using the build in tools/settings.

Lisi try check out the settings. See if you can alter the fonts, and set it to 
display text as the default. It might help.

I know this is exactly helpful, but...
