Not if it makes the site's misspellings more visible.

Uh-oh, wait, are we talking about initial visits (SEO) or overall long-term traffic including multiple pages, bookmarks and recommendations to other humans? A robot doesn't have eyeballs, though it can certainly read CSS. Unless you've expressly forbidden it to do so.

Postulate: Humans will spend more time on a site if its text content is comfortable to read.

The above seems intuitively obvious-- but things that seem intuitively obvious aren't always so. :( Has anyone got hard evidence?

I don't believe it would affect SEO at all. If you use header tags correctly, you may get a little boost but this is so old-school that it has very little - if any - affect on the rankings. And header tags (and even using <strong> ) are more likely to help over larger font size.

yes i think the same, may be front size only can attract peoples not the Search engines....

by the way, thanks for your opinion....
