[platform-help-dev] Why are the fontsizes fixed in the book.css?

Hi,

I find it really hard to read the eclipse online docu,
because the font size is set to small (fixed) fonts.
When I read long texts on the screen I prefer really big
fonts, because I find it much more relaxing for my eyes
to read text that way. For quickly looking up something,
small fonts may be acceptable.

Is there a reason to use a fixed size font? I really hate
this (Its the same annoying restriction on the eclipse webpage).

With internet explorer and mozilla one can nicely change the
font size of a web page using the weelmouse (hold the control
key down and scroll the wheel).

(I don't feel "disabled" enough to use the Microsoft
accessibility magnifying glass)

The simplest way to make the fonts scalable is by removing
the book.css from the doc zip files (or by removing the
font-size entries in that file).

I feel tempted to write a little plugin that removes the
book.css from the doc zip files....
