Re: Bootstrapping a CP/M installation

It'll even run Zork. Yay! But hmm, the Master doesn't seem to be able to handle ANSI escape sequences so the display's a mess. Anyone know if there's a way to get Acorn CP/M to handle escape codes properly? This might be of some interest: https://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6727&hilit...

Re: Quoted text in Notes is too big, esp. on iOS

With Chrome you can set defaults for various types of body text, I tweeked mine a month or so ago because monospaced fonts were't being assigned an appropriate font.

iOS does that on some other web sites.
Quite possibly. It's not just on iOS that the quoted text on bbcmicro.co.uk is too big though -- it's too big in desktop Safari and Chrome too.

The style-definition of "blockquote" in the CSS needs tweaking, that's all, I think.

Quoted text in Notes is too big, esp. on iOS

As per subject, in the Notes sections of Details pages on bbcmicro.co.uk, any quoted text is displayed in too large a font size, especially on iOS.

See attached iOS screenshot.
