The resolution does help, and it should have some truly awesome font glyphs
once you specify larger fonts...but that's just the problem when trying to
read a forum formatted even for a VGA desktop... To have it formatted
correctly, you have to use the pixel-to-height ratio that a desktop would
use, which means you need the borgstrap Ian mentioned :)

If you use large enough characters to read, it won't format well.
