Subject: [PATCH] hval: set font-size:100% for all elements
Date: Tue,  1 Jan 2019 07:51:38 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

GUI browsers have a tendency to use a larger (though sometimes
smaller) font than the rest of the page for some reason I could
not find...

So set everything to 100% to give uniformity to the page; which
benefits visually-challenged users who want to use gigantic
fonts for the entire page.
