Historically speaking, changes to the norm aren’t always well received, if they are too “different” or “out there”. Usually, there are a few people ahead of the curve that spread the word of change to the masses, and often times are met with resistance or at times backlash. Take D Bnonn Tennant’s article for Smashing Magazine “16 Pixels: For Body Copy. Anything Less is a Costly Mistake”. Eliciting over 400 comments, this surely was one hot topic for debate amongst web designers. Many praised his article while others flat out argued against his concept, and of course some took the opportunity to expand upon his point a bit, adding pertinent points or debating details of his argument.
