Description

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Weird_things:

Several links (including the links to the side menu, the watchlist, the notifications side menu, edit buttons, the "This page has issues" link, the names of articles as presented on the page itself, and possibly others) are all of a sudden slightly bigger, slightly, smaller, or are spaced out differently.

Looks fine to me.. Can a designer confirm? I suspect the user was facing some sort of caching issue.

Hrrrm. Only the menu icons look small to me (logged in/out locally).

Upping the nav's font-size is set to 1 em fixes this, but I'm not sure what's changed around the menu recently to cause this in the first place.

The font size got pushed down to .8 recently triggered by this:

Not sure if it was always intended to be that size or not.

Thanks @Jdlrobson. I'll push a change to try and kick off the discussion.
