First of all, I would like to say that I really want to stick with Safari. I love the reader view, the click to flash extension, and the option to use QuickTime as my default media player. But I'm having a LOT of trouble with the overall appearance. I know I can set the minimum font size on preferences, but the layout goes wacky. For instance, when the font size increases, the space BETWEEN the lines doesn't, which makes it cramped and ugly. Also, the WIDTH of the text as a whole does not fill the entire screen and in fact does not increase at all with the increase in size. What results is a similar sized column with text crammed vertically instead of filling out horizontally. Is there any way to change this? Please do not give me technical answers unless you can help me work through it step by step.


Another issue that occurs with Facebook in particular - with larger font sizes, letters are often cut off due to partial overlap. That is rather annoying as well. WIDTH expansion and proportional SPACE between lines would be much appreciated. Does anyone know this answer to this? Thanks.
