Obligatory TECHWR-L content: Use reasonably large, clear fonts when
designing for print *or* online publication.
Ah, but what constitutes REASONABLY LARGE? :-) It's all subjective.
I'm looking at turning 40 this year, and the 10.5 TNR were using in our printed docs looks huge to me -- if I were designing it for just me to look at, I'd have it down to 8-9 pts. But, I recognize that I'm not in the normal ranges -- my monitor is set at 1600x1200 pixels, small fonts, and everyone complains that they can't see anything because it's set too small.
