well, yes, and in the end whomever does the redesign will have final
say, but what this does is give that person something to work towards.

as for HD, I agree it doesn't guarantee more that the space will be
visable, but considering most HDTV's are larger, in the 42+ range,
having an SD and an HD version will let the person choose. But I know
on my 50" 1080p screen I can fit a lot more information and still have
it visible at my siting distance. Like you say, its about how its
used, and It would be great to be able to take advantage of smaller
text if I can.
