Hi there,

I have a question (may be if there designers of Live.com services they
will answer it):

Why many of Live.com sections and services use small font size (about
11px in browsers I have).
I've though it common wisdom to go with at least 12px for main content.

Few examples:
- http://publisher.live.com
- http://help.live.com

I'm not pointing finger to anybody, just trying to understand logic
behind such decision.

I checked it both in FF and IE.

Live Search looks good, but many other services of Live.com family use
that small font in both browsers.

Right, they allow zooming (by specifing font size in percents) but I'm
not sure if doing font-size: 70% is good default.
