    actually, I am 18 years your senior and have no problem reading this table but people differ. 

    Zooming the font in size widens the whole thing, too, to make it spill over the margins pretty soon. There are plenty of fonts out there, and this one - DilleniaUPC - is particularly suited for small print. I have two narrow fonts but they are so ugly you would not want them any size. Unfortunately, my software does not allow me to zoom in on axis only, here the y-axis, but some graphics program out there will. I will have to work on this. So you see there are some non-CelNav issues but this can be done to some extend.

    Please do me a  favor if you can: compare the font's tallness of your table and mine, possibly in mm. Then I will have a measure of what you can read. In the meantime I will zoom the tables to the largest I can.

    I have already plans for the back side. Stand by.

    The 2' table is pretty good.  The size of the numbers are too small for my 56 year old eyes though. I would zoom x1.5 even if it means adding half a page. Good work !
