Even if the application handles very large font sizes correctly ( most
will work OK but look strange ) you will find that the user interface
still looks wrong, because lines will be much finer than they appear on
screen (they're still 1 pixel, irrespective of how big that pixel is).
Fine lines might not even be visible and are quite likely not to be
clear, though again this depends a lot on your print process and other

By the way, please change your reply settings so that your e-mail
program generates plain text e-mail instead of HTML, and clearly
identifies replies with something like a > prefix on the lines. Your
email is very hard to read because there is no clear separation between
the quoted text and your additions.

Your e-mail program appears to be hopelessly buggy; it even emits HTML
and CSS in the text/plain part. If you can not turn off HTML mode,
consider finding a better email program.

Here's an excerpt of your email as it appears to many of the users on
the list:

.mw-warning {
	border: 1px solid #aaa;
	background-color: #f9f9f9;
	padding: 5px;
	font-size: 95%;
#toc h2,
.toc h2 {
	display: inline;
	border: none;
	padding: 0;
	font-size: 100%;
	font-weight: bold;
#toc #toctitle,
.toc #toctitle,
#toc .toctitle,
.toc .toctitle {
	text-align: center;
