Font sizes! (Text too small.)

Parent article: Welcome to the new LWN.net!
My first reaction was that, oh no, they've gone and made the fonts smaller.
Now, granted, with Galeon, it's very easy to click the little expander button a couple of times and make the thing readable again, but....
It seems to me that a basic precept of web design should be that the users have chosen their default browser font size because that is the font size that they find readable and in which they want to see the bulk of the "text" that they see.
Given this, I'd love to see LWN made the standard text of the articles be the standard font size, not something resized.
(The headers are too big too; I liked the old LWN Daily smaller headers, but that's not something I really care enough about to comment on, even though I just did, so hmmm.)
