    Code/PHP on sitepoint really small?

    Does anyone else find the code/php in posts really small? I am not sure if this was done for a particular reason - maybe it had to be this way. I was wondering if it could be bumped up a point or so.

    I think it's an IE thing. The size of the code is okay in Firefox.

    Aahh...you are right. I just took a look at it in firefox.
    I wonder why IE is so crazy like this.

    I'm surprised that vbulletin haven't fixed this. I will modify it again so it looks OK on IE.

    Almost ALL of the fonts look HUGE on Win/IE5.5

    The code size is bearable, but a touch small.

    If you are running IE5.5 I highly recommend that you upgrade to IE6

    Code/PHP font size looks fine in the default vBulletin installation at vBulletin.com using IE 6.0...

    Yea, I would if I could, but it's the computer at work so that's not possible.

    I did a bit of experimenting and it seems the difference is due to vBulletin.com using "10pt" as its main font size whereas these forums use "small". Specifying font sizes using a keyword has its benefits, for example it allows a user to alter their font size settings. However, for <pre> and <code> elements, 'small' looks too small on IE6 in standards compliant mode. This is easily fixed - simply specify a font size for <pre> and <code> in the stylesheet.
