Description

When viewing this web page I find I have to increase the size of text because I have poor vision.

If I use the control-+ to increase the text size, your web page forces me to scroll the window left to right to read lines of text.

Use the method that wikipedia.com uses for displaying the screen.

wikipedia.com adjusts the text to fit within the displayed window by making lines shorter as text size increases and making lines longer as text size increases.

Go to wikipedia.com and view any entry. Then do a control-+ to increase text size and see what it does. Then do a control-- to reduce size of text and see what it does. NOTE: I am using Ubuntu 16.04 - hence my control-+ increases text size and control-- will decrease text size. I don't know what keys are used to do this with other operating systems.

Just an idea from a 71 year old with bad eyes.
