Text size[edit]

Use of <small>...</small> tags within a box like this breaches MOS:ACCESS#Font size since it makes the text too small to read. I have fixed two instances, but the text size problem still affects the two lines "ticket hall (raised)" and "stairs/lift", but these don't use <small>...</small> and I can't work out how to fix them. Adam37, please address this problem. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:44, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Good because it is a diagrammatic, have you never struggled to read a paper diagram. However in computing if you care to use Ctrl-hold-+ you can zoom in, or use two fingers dragging them apart on a smart phone. Thank you for widening the template, whatever floats your boat, personally I preferred to take up less of the page but that purely is a minor layout point you make as said in my second sentence, easily resolved, without much need for a microscope.- Adam37 Talk 07:36, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
I should not need to zoom. MOS:ACCESS#Font size says In no case should the resulting font size drop below 85% of the page's default font size (i.e. 11.9 px in Vector skin or 10.8 px in Monobook). As it stands, the text "stairs/lift" is 10px, which is far too small. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 10:41, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
We have a difference of philosophy; I followed another precedent with nothing wrong with it and no-one having critiqued that article, indeed the text is so non-important and intuitive anyway that I would be aghast if people could not gauge what it might be, even if a little wanting for zoom function or eyesight (either way); I have now tried to boost the font to cater to such absolutist abidance by 'policy'; really I cannot do anything more. This appears to be a hiding to nothing Redrose and indeed petty. Why are people so funny about such unimportant text. Not just you.- Adam37 Talk 11:30, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
People are funny about it because they struggle to read tiny font sizes. Why anyone would want to subject already disadvantaged readers to that unpleasant experience is quite beyond my comprehension. I've fixed the legend text and the text used in {{BSsplit}} so that it is no longer less than 85% of the normal page font size. Let me know if that causes anybody any problems. --RexxS (talk) 22:06, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
