Looks really nice.

One issue I see is with some of the special characters not displaying properly - look at the first couple of sticky posts under 'Bus Topics' and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Otherwise, from first look it's much easier to read with the higher contrast.

Thanks for the hard work getting it done.

Agree about the special characters.   My first impression was, wow that is hard to read.  Red and grey just don't do it for me. I find that many forums are going to grey lettering and I find it just hard to read, not enough contrast.

I agree Dick. The gray isn't enough contrast. I found it not as user friendly as the old one to get to read new stuff.

  ...  My first impression was, wow that is hard to read.  Red and grey just don't do it for me. I find that many forums are going to grey lettering and I find it just hard to read, not enough contrast. 

    My first impression, wow, it's almost impossible to read.   I have OLD ummm, I mean Middle-Aged (that's my story and I'm stickin to it) Eyes, and I am struggling.  Is there anything in the "Personalization Settings" that will make it easier to read???

     Sorry to come off with complaints.  I value this Forum highly and appreciate all the work (& time, & expense) that Gary, Phil and other put into it.  Thank you so much.

Oh yeah, special characters are a key ingredient to this hobby!

But how do you fix 'em?

Lots of us been trying for as long as the internet has been letting us, with little success.

On the issue of readability... Can you bump up the font size? Or allow us to set the font size?

I know I can increase the "zoom" resolution size in the browser, and I have. But it'd be nice not to have to do that with each visit.
