We’ve all encountered web pages with tiny, wacky fonts and bad contrast.  They must be ashamed of the writing.  Anyway, now there’s a way to improve on-screen readability.  Two JavaScript applications (bookmarklets, actually — you set them up in your browser and click them when you need them) let wanna-readers change the font, size, layout, colors, margins, etc.  They work with browser size settings and screen magnifiers, so mix and match as you please.  Low vision users and possibly those who get distracted by busy layouts may benefit.
