Change Font Size and Face
More Technical Info
The font size used on my site scales quite well to your browser's window, and so does the font face used (serif for larger, sans-serif for smaller screens). Still, you may prefer to set your own, custom size and face for viewing wrotniak.net. Why not?
The [Custom] font face button allows you to name a particular font face, or you can click on one of the font names listed in the box (see Details for more on that.)
The [Auto] font size button makes the actual size self-adjust every time the window is redrawn or resized. If you don't like the way this is done, just pick a given size.
Note: if you now revisit a page which your browser keeps cached, you may have to refresh the view in order to see the changes.
In order for this to work, my other pages must "know" what your selection was. To have this setting persist from one session to another the page stores a cookie string (two cookies), on your computer. The string contains just two information: font size and font face.
For example: fs=13pt; ff="Book Antiqua";
This information is not shared with any other party or Web site, it also does not contain any data which may be used to identify you.
Many Web sites send you cookies without asking for any permission. Most commercial cookies are used to trace your browsing from one site (or page) to another. I don't do that.
If you wish to erase my cookies from your computer, just click on [Remove Cookies]. Remember that whenever you click on any suixze or face, the cookie file will be recreated — unless you have disabled cookies for my site.
Font size (points) is selected by clicking on one of the top-row buttone. This is the base size, used to display most of the plain text; all other sizes will be rescaled in the same proportion.
For the font face you may select a generic font type ([Sans] or [Serif]), a particular font by name (the [Custom] button), or one of faces from a fixed list. In the last case, there are three cases of fonts:
Fonts marked with an asterisk* also have a Compressed version, which will be used if the respective checbox is marked at selecting.
