congratulations for the ‘HAIKU’ look & feel of the new web site.
I’m fifty, and the font size is too small for me to comfortably read you pages.
I can increase the browser font size but the page width remain the same and I have just few words in each line even if I full screen my browser.
could you do something to avoid that ?
I was of the opinion that the fixed-width site is somewhat annoying as well…on a 1600x1200 screen, maximizing the browser just seems to waste a lot of horizontal space… I like sites that grow proportionally with the browser… although that tends to change the way the site looks slightly…
Well, the original design was layed out for around a 700 pixel width site. I think I’m going to end up looking for a way to make it scalable though fairly quickly as it seems to be a common request. But as for maximizing in 1600x1200 mode… I would much rather have it small and have 3 web sites up side by side =) But hey, I’m just a web developer.

Side-by-Side websites? - I use tabs when i’m looking at multiple sites
In any case, if it was scalable - you could of course make the browser window width smaller and the website would just conform to the window size.
I don’t want to nitpick about that much - the layout is pretty clean and easy on the eyes as it is now
Well the original design was meant to work on 800 x 600 which is the minimum these days.
Perhaps adding the dynamic ability to grow, based on larger resolutions, would be a good idea. That’s something that can always be added down the track.
It is easy on my eyes.
normally white backgrounds snowblind me somewhat,
but the balance of text and graphics is well designed.
Although Microsoft’s Reader has been bashed a good deal, I like it because the type is easy to read and like the originating poster, I am 50-something and the peepers ain’t what they used to be. So, if the type from MS Reader can be employed, I think this would help.
I think patents prevent Haiku from using Microsoft’s text display technology, and fonts that have not been distributed separately with an open/free license are not available for distribution with Haiku.
If you don’t mind breaking your Microsoft Windows EULA (which I suppose this would), you can manually copy fonts from Windows (or Linux, or Mac OS) to Haiku, if they are in a supported format.
