Thanks for the info on increasing font size. Though I've found other  
limitations with this program, I greatly appreciate the work you've  
done on it and the contributions you've made to the python-user  
community. It is work like this, contributed freely to the world, that  
you and others have done that makes me smile. If I ever have the  
capacity to make such a contribution myself, I will surely do so.

Thanks much and future success and happiness to you and yours,
