That's interesting speculation, on the basis of the classic HTML  
definition for <small>, and possibly also for the proposed HTML5 excuse  
for a surrogate for a quasi-definition. But I have not seen anything  
resembling factual evidence (e.g., a statement from Google, or a report  
of an experiment) about it. Have you?

No, I have not. Just speculating and thinking I might bear it in mind.

So probably browsers should display the contents of <small> elements in
a nice clear easy-to-read font that's a bit larger than usual.

Perhaps in a juster world! <g>

But no, when I said "regardless of the size of the text", I was  
meaning that the absolute size of the text was not relevant. It  
sometimes if not often denotes material the authors consider to be  
standard between it and its competitors, that it risks the death from  
boredom of potential customers. The urge for small or fine print  
sections is sometimes honourable, to void confusion.

Sydney has just introduced the Opal card, you tap it on a machine at  
the beginning and end of ferry, bus and train journeys. There are  
constant reminders to do this as it is so new. On the ferries (my main  
experience since I live on the harbour) there are loud announcements  
at every stop! When everyone gets used to this card, I am hoping the  
operational advice will get said more quickly in a quieter voice or  
abandoned altogether. In other words, I want it in the fine print of  

When people want to read a timetable, it is not their primary interest  
to be told about things other than times, so... other interesting but  
not relevant to the main purpose things can be left to the fine or  
small print...
