Quick Tip: Small Text

WCAG 2.0 does not provide requirements for text sizes. It is easy to overlook the impact that small text has on web site users, particularly those with low vision. Because text sizes vary based on the font face in use, the user's display, viewing distance, etc., use common sense in determining if text is likely small enough to cause issues. As a very general rule, text that is sized smaller than 10 pixels in height tends to cause readability issues for many users.
