Needed: New Font for Drudge

Is there a font size larger than +7? I sure hope so, for the sake of dramatic effect and continuity over at the DRUDGE REPORT.

That’s the current font size attribute for the headline “DEM PARTY BLOW-OUT: CLAMBAKE AT TED’S, PRIVATE BRIEFING FROM BILL, COCKTAILS WITH BEN.” The story, as I understand it, is that the Democrats, in conjection with their Boston convention, are having a party. Hosting is Teddy Kennedy, a Boston area Democrat. Attending the party? Some Democrats.

Given the “dog bites man” nature of the story, surely at least a font=+8 is called for for a story on, say, the Red Sox losing in the playoffs or a spotting of liberal bias in the press.

    Although Macs will play it sanely, I inadvertently found that if you use about 10 [big] tags, MS IE will display it large enough that one letter takes up nearly the entire screen. But please don’t tell Drudge that.
