OK. As I said, this is a minor issue.

However suggestions about using command-+, or setting a minimum font  
size in the browser are not very efficient - they require n users to  
fix the problem, rather than one developer.

Something in the tex source this file is generated from is calling for  
an 8 point font, looking at the generated html. Can that just be  
omitted from the relevant tex source, so we at least get 10 point?

Best wishes
