Running on a Windows 95 system, my Netscape 2.01, under Options |
Preferences | Fonts, allows a choice of different typefaces (apparently
the ones Windows knows about) and typesizes from 8 to 72 pt. Perhaps
this would work only with newsgroups and email.

As it took me so long to set up Netscape with my current service
provider, right now I'm reluctant to experiment with type sizes.
