Hey Zuzel, Arlton, John et Al.

1. Slab serif - Totally agree with Arlton - the line height, the use of the slab serif and the bottom margins on some of the text based block level elements seriously hinder  the readability of current site.

Keep it for headings, but for body text I have a hunch that falling back to a more readable serif and setting the line-height to be a ratio of 2/3  ( or thereabouts ) 1em and 1.5em will bring more readable joy to users.

2. No ordering - they are in an order for a reason.

Just to also say well done Zuzel - I know we've not chatted directly with one another, but well done and thanks.

Can anyone else point to another site that uses a slab-serif typeface exclusively for all the text on the site? I don't know of one. We need to provide the users the familiarity that they find on the rest of the web. They don't need to be jostled by how different the typeface of the P2PU content is.
