Here are the two screen captures I did on my system: the first [1] is
the default, rendered in Firefox on Fedora 18, while the second [2] is
using Arial 12pt on the same. I find the Arial 12pt more appealing to

Also, since most systems these days have screens with >= 1280px wide
displays, can we adjust the width of the webpage accordingly? There's a
lot of empty gutter space on either side that feels wasted. Even if we
constrain the main content to a region, say, 1000px wide (to
accomodating people on older displays) we could still have some common
