Setting font sizes for downloaded news

Sorry to keep adding on new topics here, but I figured I'd be more likely to find answers to my questions if I just ask each separately. Anyway, I found that the default font size on the Sony reader is too small for me. I like to switch it to the large font which makes for a reasonably comfortable experience. Unfortunately, one of the many, many improvements Sony could but has not made to their firmware is the ability to pick font size permanently for everything. For books, this is a minor annoyance since I set it once when I start reading a new book and then I can just forget about it. However, for the newspapers and magazines, which get downloaded regularly, it's really annoying.

I tried setting the default font size in the conversion settings, but that seems to have had no effect on the font size for the newspapers I download. I had already asked this question on the Sony forum and was told to ask here, so I'm asking -- what do I need to do in order to set my choice of font size for downloaded newspapers? Do I have to go into each recipe and specify my own style sheet for it? Any suggestions would be appreciated. And of course, if anyone knows of a way that I can set a default size for fonts on the PRS-600 (I know PRS+ lets you do it on the 505, but it's not available for the 600), please do let me know.

Thanks,

Eric
