I think we're talking about the default setup... and I think that will use
CSS, but Patrick should answer this really.
But I wasn't talking about a special CSS customization, but how the page
layout would look like for someone using a their own CSS-sheet (some
browsers allow you to override the CSS specified by the site). This might
be useful for people who want bigger fonts, or simply fonts that are
easier to read.
I use this feature alot when I look at poorly designed web sites that are
not standars-compatible, because it's a useful way of finding links
that might otherwise be hidden behind images and stuff. Not to mention
people with really poor taste in colors, or when they think 8pt fonts are
