I beleve I'm using the default font size, but I don't remember if I 
changed it or not.  The font size is comfortable for me on most web 
pages.  In any case, how many lines of text do you see on your system 
using your setup?

As far as less having a lot of sections, it is typical of most of the 
sections in the book and is a resoanble test case.
