Font of Note

According to the report, Research-Based Web Design and Usability Guidelines, issued by the US Dept. of Health and Human Services, "Research has shown that fonts smaller than 12 points elicit slower reading performance from users. For users over age 65, it may be better to use at least fourteen-point fonts. Never use less than a nine-point font on a Web site."

And yet, the AARP uses normal fonts. http://www.aarp.org/
I'll follow their lead.

Dead. Horse.

Ok, ok, AARP represents anyone over 50. Duly noted.
