In Chrome, on iOS.

Suspect something like a style sheet issue.

    Thank you.
    Which iOS, please? (And which sort of device?) We'll look further.

    Thanks again.
    A few more requests, if you would.
    I'm not seeing any issue on the virtual machine we have available for checking into reports of site malfunction. So, if you would be so kind, could you please go through the steps of clearing your cache and cookies for Daily Kos, then rebooting your phone? (You'll have to login again.) That process alone can sometimes jiggle the site into loading/displaying as it should.
    If that doesn't work,
    1. Please attach a screenshot so we can have some means of comparison.
    2. Do you have dynamic type settings on, and have you adjusted them recently if so?
    Thanks for your help with troubleshooting.

    Normally the iOS appearance is commensurate with the above.

    This is what the iPad Pro shows on a 12.9 inch screen:

    I realize they are not going to be identical, and I can also report that
    was very moderate improvement after clearing cache / cookies. Still, the
    relative font size appears larger in the iOS rendering, it looks like a
    Readers Digest large print edition.

    Running a test to adjust dynamic type settings - which I actually had not
    set to enabled. (Set on "Default"). That demands a complete restart of iPad
    / clear cache as just setting flag and closing / reopening app did not
    improve matters at all.

    Oh thank you. Yes, of course, I mistyped when I said phone. Appreciate the additional information.
