OK, so I know I can enlarge text in Fire Fox and Chrome and so forth.. but a growing number of of sites (e.g The New Yorker) provide the ability to resize text (usually 3 choices) and it's cookie stored so that every time the site is revisited, that text size is..automatacilly, magically, there. I don't personally need it, but I bet some older folks do. 'oh yes I do', he mumbled

In your user profile area, you can select the font and the size used for the site. Did you notice that?

I did not. Thank you. Although I fail (among many failures) to understand why it can't be more obvious.

Actually, it is pretty obvious. When you sign up for your account, and log in with it the first time, you're taken to your profile page to fill it out.

that was a couple years ago and I don't hang out on that page...besides, the New Yorker (for another example) makes it clearly obvious :) "user-friendly" to coin a phrase...

Yeah, it's on the prefs page. The New Yorker puts it on their page themselves because they don't have user accounts or prefs or anything like that.
