A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
I agree with this, FYI: I'm using Mozilla on a 1600x1200 display
Font sizes! (Text too small.)

I never even noticed, nor have I ever gotten to see the "font sizes that
are too small".
Nothing is as simple as it seems at first
Or as hopeless as it seems in the middle
Or as finished as it seems in the end

Actually, Mozilla (and, by extension, Galeon, although I haven't actually figured out how to set it in Galeon yet) has a nifty little option that specifies a minimum font size. Once I enabled that, I've never had a problem (Mozilla requires that all fonts be at least that minimum size, even if the stylesheet or something else specifies otherwise). Unfortunately, it's not a user-visible preferences item (you have to manually edit the .js file for now), but it works on all recent versions of Mozilla I've messed with (Linux, Win32, 0.98+).
Check the Mozilla Organization for more info, or more specifically here. It's under UI look-and-feel issues. Even though this page covers Unix-specific issues, that particular fix seems to work under Windows as well. Good luck finding the config file, though, esp. under NT/2000.

Nevermind. I'd forgotten about the ability to set the minimum font size in Galeon (actually, I haven't needed to bother yet), and it seems that Mozilla (at least 1.0rc3--don't know about earlier ones) has added that option to the Preferences/Appearance/Fonts tab.
