You guys are doing a great job of providing the OS/2 community the daily news. Since the OS/2 Supersite has had problems with it's server for the last seven months, this is the the best news site on line!

I am using Communicator 4.61 from eComStation preview and the fonts seem a bit big here, but small on the home page? The home page is actually only about 2/3 of my desktop?

Yes, I am running 1024 x 768 resolution, but at less than that the site (and all sites looked very bad).

Comments are always welcome?

Best wishes,

Don

Thanks for positive reactions! The problem with the fonts has do with Netscape! Even if I set what fonts to be used in the html code the browser, Netscape ignores the value and over rides it own values, ie the settings in preferenses. All news are posted with font size=1 and it might be small. My guess is it could be the compination of the colors that might give you a hard time to read it. This will change, there will be some sort of make over of the site in the near future. Also I will start to use style sheets, that gives more control and forces Netscape in OS2 to play along ;-). Regarding this size of the fonts in the online forum, would a suggestion from you to make the font a bit smaller?

There is also http://www.os2.org that has news about OS/2. Don't forget http://www.os2voice.org. There is also the OS/2 Connect on http://www.egroups.com that has news from members (news and everything else).
OS/2 Warp-ed to the very end.

Agree there are lots of sites for OS2 users to browser around too. Problem is that that many of the sites are rather hard to find, well as the most if the stuff on the internet ;-). If You're looking for OS2 Links check out the link system, around 500 os2 related links.

I believe that you understand what I was saying about the fonts except those in the "online forum".

When reading the "online forum" the fonts are the same size as the home page.

When posting or replying to the "online forum", the fonts are about twice that size.

IMHO, I think that all fonts should be the same size, but bigger than that presently used on the home page.

Thanks,
Don
