Font Size is Too Small & Will Penalize the Site's SEO Rankings

Body text for messages should be 16px. It's currently 14px.

Otherwise, Google will downgrade you in search engine rankings.

In the style sheet, change this:

.messageText
{
font-size: 14px;
font-family: "myriad-pro", "Myriad Pro", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
line-height: 1.42857143;

}

Probably should change all the other 14px settings while you're at it.

Here are Google's specific guidelines.

UA Gold * HHonors Gold * Marriott Gold * deirdre.net * OpenFlights

Thank you!

An update fixing a few things (including this) will hopefully be going out later today.
