In providing readable presentations on the screen, you still have the
problem of dealing with the reader's device. For example, I use a 21"
monitor at 1600x1200 resolution. Pages now using CSS often set fonts so
small that I sometimes cannot read them easily, if at all. I miss the
ability of being able to reset the font size to my liking.
