Teletype font tooooooo small
« on: December 13, 2005, 11:53:27 am »
is it only me or do others also have problems with reading this Teletype font ?
it is very handy to have a fixed font and not being forced to use the
Code: [Select]
codeformat, but for me it is toooo small compared to the rest of the used fonts here.

would it be possible to change the teletype to the same font and size as the "code" font ?
thanks

I don't see any problems. The font is as large as the font for normal text. Maybe it's a problem of your browser/system? I'm using Opera 8.51 on Linux.
Real Programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.
Real Programmers don't write in BASIC. Actually, no programmers write in BASIC, after the age of 12.

Firefox displays teletype far too big  :?

No seriously, it is just fine for me. :lol:

I may assume you haven't inadvertedly set a small zoom factor? (Don't even know if Maxthon has any such thing as zoom, but I would guess).

Edit:   HAH!  Just found this:

Hello,

I have also the same problem with teletype. The text is very small and difficult to read. I thought it was a problem of my computer, but it seems that I am not the only one.

I use Windows XP SP2 and Internet Explorer 6.

the zoom-factor is fine - see the screen-shot there you can see the proportions 1:1

and on all other websites and /or forums i don't have the problems with teletype font
for some reason which i don't know (till now) it happens only in this forum.

Probably because the css says so:
Code: [Select]
.code
{
color: #000000;
background-color: #cccccc;
border: 1px solid #000000;
padding: 1px;
font-family: "courier new", helvetica, "times new roman", serif;
font-size: small;
/* font-size: x-small; */
width: 99%;
margin: 1px auto 1px auto;
white-space: nowrap;
overflow: auto;
}
The IE engine likely assigns something which is rather unhealthy to "small".

Yiannis, can you insert a conditional comment into the forum page template so it looks something like this?
Code: [Select]
<head>
....
<!--[if IE]>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ie.css">
<![endif]-->
</head>

and have ie.css like so:
Code: [Select]
tt, .code {font-size: normal;}
Yes, yes... telling Daddy where the children come from ;)

Err, Rick... please don't use thinks like font-size: 14px; . I am getting epileptic fits when I see things like this  :shock:

Please use relative sizes, or if you must use absolute sizes, use pt or mm.

Anyway guys did you want to modify the tt tag, or the text inside "code"?

As far as I understood, both are displayed too small in Internet Exploder. But that can be done in one assignment in css.

You could just copy the code snippet above, you know ;)


EDIT:
I just loaded The Beast and looked. Code displays ok, but tt is far too small.

In my case, it is just the text inside the tt tags that it is too small.

The text inside code tags is ok.
