Why worry about small font sizes?

Written by on August 5, 2008

Every now and then I get an email about font sizes (I wrote some articles about it in the past). But why worry about it in the first place?

We all know that tiny fonts are bad for you. It puts unnecessary strain on our eyes, which after a while evolves into a headache, feeling miserable and generally having a bad day. So why try to get as close to that as possible?

Here is an idea:

Why not try to make people feel as comfortable as possible? Try to find out what font size that gives people the best possible reading experience. What size would that be?

Forget "what is the smallest font size I can use".
Think "what is the most comfortable size to use".
