00546: PmWiki default skin - Scalable fonts
Description: I'd like to suggest improving PmWiki's web accessibility (for handicapped users) by re-enabling scalable fonts.
Of course, many browsers can scale entire web pages regardless of the CSS definitions, but the widely-used MS Internet Explorer fails in that regard.
Not terribly important, but very easy to solve :-) --Henning September 28, 2005, at 12:39 PM
I just found the W3C reference on this. Here it is ... --Henning November 22, 2005, at 06:37 AM
- Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0W3C Recommendation 5-May-1999Guideline 3. Use markup and style sheets and do so properly....3.4 Use relative rather than absolute units in markup language attribute values and style sheet property values. [Priority 2]
(Just for grins: When I suggested the use of user-scalable fonts to our mother company's intranet team, they told me "Fixed fonts are fine because we have optimized for 800 by 600 resolution.")

I replace px with em everytime I start adapting the default skin for my needs; changing the default would be good indeed. I could provide a "proof of concept" - would it be useful? --Rogutės, 2010-02-04
It will indeed be very welcome. --Petko February 04, 2010, at 06:05 AM
