Oops, sorry. That was for Firefox.

Hmm, turning off my font settings, it still looks mostly okay. The
font sizes aren't set in absolute terms in the CSS or HTML anywhere
that I can see. They're all set to percentages of the default browser
sizes. Perhaps the problem is that Konqueror is configured to make
text too small by default and it's not noticeable since many websites
set absolute sizes? Opening up konqueror on my machine, it seems to
have a default minimum size of 7pt and medium size of 10pt (In
Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Fonts), which are both rather
small. Changing 7 and 10 to 10 and 12 respectively resulted in a more
readable size for me.
