Based on the analysis of community prototypes documented here, and academic research on readability documented here let's propose the following for our new type size options.

Paragraph margins should be equal to font-size.


Preserve current default as a new "compact" option with new paragraph margins:

  • Font-size: 14px
  • Line-height: 22px
  • Paragraph margins: 14

New default

  • Font-size: 16px
  • Line-height: 24px
  • Paragraph margins: 16

Large-text reading format intended as an accessibility affordance

  • Font-size: 20px
  • Line-height: 26px
  • Paragraph margins: 20
