Sherry, today we discussed the readability of this theme. On your computer the text seemed too small. So, while we were talking we increased the body text from 15 pts to 18 pts.
Since then, I failed to find a way to insert a text block to appear on every page so that each page has copy that is “pull quote” for the page. Any page can have or not have a sidebar, but the contents of that sidebar will be the same.
So, I found a way to limit the size of the block of text for every page at the site. I changed the maximum width from 1200 px to 900 px. At that point, the line spacing was looking too wide (high) so I reduced it from 1.5 to 1.4. It was subtle, but I thought it was an improvement.
