I agree with you when regular crt displays are used, but things will
change. People buy tft screens, with native 1280x1024 resolutions.
Running in a lower resolution gives a distorted image so a lot will
keep it at 1280.
1280 means smaller (visible) text and getting older usually means
eyes less good and all... Or in my case since I spend a lot of time
with computers everyday for the last say 20 years my eyes get tired
quicker. I prefer 1280, but when reading texts I just love the simple
font sizing feature of the browser.
If a site scales gracefully (meaning I do not need to copy paste the
text to an editor and then apply a bigger font size) it got my vote :P
It will also mean I, more likely, will return for more, where a problem
site might not (not taking content into account here) attract me again.
I think scaling will become more and more of an issue, with higher
resolution capabilities of the displays used as one of the reasons and
aging of the users as another.
