Earlier, I reported no difference in readability of font sizes.... I take
that back!

I only tested with the second page. I didn't notice there were two pages.
Sorry, Jan, for my inattentiveness.

Anyway, I was unable to read with any consistency fonts less than 22 (printed
on 600 DPI HP LJ 4). 22 and up no problem (although there is some skill
involved).
