Nice! BTW, I was twidling with the font-size yesterday.
I am aware that you are using font-size: 90%; I did too
initially, but now what I found what works very well is
font-size: smaller; To see the (slight) difference, you can
check out: for example. Notice the
slight difference in size. Notice too the improved line-spacing.
This, I guess, is the reason why someone (Deane?) observed that
the wikipedia pages have better line-spacing. And I agree.
