Retreat

One of the (many) privileges of professional ministry is retreat time. We are encouraged to take some time out for thinking/reading/praying at regular intervals. I prefer to take two half-retreats a year and so will be doing that this week. Lots to ponder as you will have seen if you visited Trendleblog at all.

This particular time I will be focusing on reading as I feel a little underfed on that front just now.

blogger won't let me through, it just wants to advertise some of its services instead

and anybody who suggests moneytizing my blog just doesn't get read!

I had the same problem - try typing trendleblog.blogspot.com straight into the address box.

St is trying to start up a blog on BOGSPOT.COM, rather than blogspot...

Interesting choice of typo!

CAN'T READ IT THE WRITING IS WAY TOO SMALL!

St said...

Thanks for the typo notification. Sorry and whoops. Have corrected.

For text size to increase go to internet explorer's 'view' menu and choose larger or largest.

Well, I was just dropping in to wish you a good retreat...Enjoy

But of course I felt compelled to visit Trendleblog too, and am now in the grip of a nasty species of church envy...Sounds like some really good stuff going on :-)

Rather than telling people to change their browser settings (and at the same time falsely assuming they all have Internet Explorer) you should fix your CSS. There is no way that it should contain the following styles for the body section!

font:x-small
font-size/* */:/**/small;

Thanks geekyboy. I just said what I'd do if the situation were reversed since if I can do something to make my own life easier it happens quicker than expecting others to do it for me. Now tell me what CSS stands for there's a love and I'll investigate.

By the way if people don't have internet explorer I imagine they are way ahead anyway and would know what to do to read small print.

Cascading StyleSheets. Try w3.org/Style/CSS/learning for more information, and take a peak at csszengarden.com to see what can be done.

I would recommend leaving font size of body (the overall document) and p (paragraphs) at their defaults, which should be the preferred reading size of the user. You can then make legalese smaller, and headings larger, or whatever to your heart's content.

I don't know what's harder to comprehend; a discussion of theology or all this CSS / x-small font stuff.

Anybody fancy talking about camshaft profiles of desmodronic valve gears?

No.
