The font-size currently set on the body declaration or your page is the
same as of this writing as it was earlier today-- 80% (or 20% smaller
than default). Try setting it at 100%.

Essentially there is nothing intrinsically wrong with color within
The primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) are difficult to use on the
"canvas"-- whether the "canvas" is paper, linen, or a computer screen.
The very, very discriminatory of one color (either red or blue) in
addition to bold in black might better for text. Name of the game with
color and boldface within text is to /use very little of it/, and try
not to assault folks senses while your do it: think "less" is "more."

It is, as you noted, fine in narrow windows. It is not centered in the
page in a very wide window. On a MBP (116.5 dpi) at full window width
IE/6 more or less centers h2 but not h1.
