thread navigation buttons too small

I have a suggestion regarding the thread navigation buttons for long threads. See the top attached image for things as they are now.

when navigating through long threads, these nav buttons are (IMHO):
  1. too small
  2. the next and previous buttons should be larger, as they are commonly used.
My suggestions:
  1. making the next/prev buttons larger
  2. using a 10 pt font instead of a 7 or 8 pt font
The second attachment is an example of what I believe would be more readable, and easier to you.

Thanks for listening...

You can accomplish that on your end from any website by selecting View from your browser menu and then going to text zoom. The bonus is that everything else will be bigger as well. A zoom of 120% usually solves it for me when I get on one of those sites that uses 1 point font for everything.

There is no such View / Zoom menu entry in IE 6.0

There is a View / Text Size menu entry. I have tried changing that to make the fonts themselves larger, and it does not work on rcgroups web pages. This does work on google home page for example.

So far, there is no workaround I know of.

Yes, I have always thought about how much nicer the 'Zone would be if they were bigger. Thanks for bringing it up Jon.
And Jon's right about View >> TextSize not affecting anything here. Only thing that does affect size is the screen size -here at home it's slightly bigger than at work - I use 1024x768 here and 1280x?? at work. Work is smaller.

O, another thing is the target size under the numerals of the nav. tools -they are not as big as the numeral's cell, about 1/2 the cell actually. See the pic.

Yes, I noticed that too. Effectively makes the button a small fraction of the rectangle's area.

I really like this site. RcGroups is among my favorite places to go on the web. I am hoping the admins like my suggestions for improvement.
