> Any thoughts on why table body text should be smaller?

Fit more? Since FM, which I use, doesn't break rows between pages, by
having smaller rows I reduce the number of times that I'll have big
blocks of white space at the bottom of a table.

It also reduces the amount of time I have to expand column widths to
handle numeric strings. Nobody likes numbers to wrap in columns

I also think it looks better.
