The css uses font-size of 13px. This is way too small and hard to read 
specially on high resolution screens used typically on laptops.

Font size for body text should be 100%. A user can select the preferred 
font size using the browser.

Python 2.x documentation is much more readable.

Yes, I wanted to change that even a while ago.

I agree.  It shouldn't be an absolute size, and it is too small.

Okay, should be fixed in SVN (rev. 57864) and be live on the page in
the next 12 hours.

The body font size is good now, but now lot of elements are too big. 
Here are list of issues in typical pages related to the font change:

Module page: (e.g. http://docs.python.org/dev/library/bisect.html)

- content headings
- the bread-crumbs navigation flow to out of its div when the using 
narrow window or huge font in the browser
- previous|next... links in the header
- headings in the sidebar are huge
- text in the sidebar can be smaller then the body text
- copyright line - can by tiny

Main page (http://docs.python.org/dev/index.html):

- The main titles (e.g. What's new in ...) are huge - 100-120% should be 
fine. (CSS class biglink)
- The links description may be smaller then the regular body text

Okay, next try. I think the sizes are more balanced now.
