In my previous post, I mentioned increasing the font size as part of the responsive overhaul of the theme.

I still think that increasing font size is important enough to make the new default. That said, for those who for whatever reason prefer the smaller font size of the traditional Arras, we ought to be able to override that.

So yesterday I added an override to the new stylesheet that resets the font size across the board back to the 12px base font-size. Here’s what it looks like:

Legacy Font Size

What’s next is to create a new option for whether to use the legacy size or new size.

Ideally, for sites that are updating from a previous version, the option will be automatically set for the legacy size, allowing you update without the font-size change and then select the larger font-size as an intentional choice. New installs would start with the larger font-size as the preferred setting.
