Description Walter von Entferndt 2020-06-28 08:46:40 UTC

In general, the fonts on the FreeBSD website are ok -- in contrast to many other sites, where often the default fonts are either way too small or way too large.

But the fonts on "security advisories" and "errata notices" are too small.  I enlarge them two times to get the default font size, they are readable when enlarging once.

With kind regards, "Walter von Entferndt"

Thanks for the report!

I am afraid that we cannot control it currently. Both errata notices and security advisories are published as plain text documents, and they are presented with the defaults of your browser. There is no CSS that we could change there. The presentation of those files depends solely on the browser settings.

The redesign of the website is a project that is slowly getting traction. I'll point people working on it to this issue to make them aware of this accessibility issue.

The font size for monospace fonts is the same as of the default font.  See the attached screenshot.  Or my browser is buggy here (it has many bugs concerning other topics...)

Thanks, I'll take a look.
