Default Re: bb10 browser - force larger text size?

To show the resulting text size on the Z10 vs the 9700, I have made 4 screenshots:
mobile browser mode Z10, 9700
Desktop browser mode Z10, 9700
I have rendered the screenshots to a 96ppi resolution, which will on my screen display then in the correct size for both Devices. Then put the screenshots side by side together.
If you have a screen with a different resolution, it might display the wrong size.

To me it looks, that the resulting font size on the 9700 is much larger, and therefore much better to read. Actually it can be read, which is not the case with the Z10 (unless I zoom and drag). On the 9700 I dont have to zoom, the only thing I have to do is to scroll up and down, which also makes it easier not to loose track where I am on the page. On the Z10 If I zoom, I have to drag up and down and right to left to get to the area I want to read.

I really dont have anything against a high resolution screen. I love it. But, What the f*** is a high resolution screen for, if it only displays some picture instead of readable text ?

This really would be easy to fix. Just insert a custom stylesheet which doubles the text size using mm instead of pixels.
