Increasing text size works on FireFox and netscape but not on IE. This is a
common failing of themes and not acceptible.

This is awesome. Really :-)
But istyledthis.nl still lacks too many boxes and information (compared to
- drupal logo
- better <h1>
- contrast. istyledthis.nl is exactly the type of site i am forced to
  increase font size immediatelly after trying to read first word. just
  because gray on white blue IS NOT readable.
- lacks links in node posts
- node posts are not divided between themselves enough
- missing tabs (user/login)
- missing styling for warnings and errors

Istyledthis.nl is just very nice header with some content added, i don't
think it's enough for default core theme...
