CG – offramp style

Offramp, in his usual not-so-innocent innocence (or insouciance?), asked this: Jul-26-16 offramp: How do I change the font for the entire site to comic sans? I recommend using Stylish, an add-on available in both Chrome and Firefox, and beyond, most likely. Here is some screenshots from Firefox: It’s not so marked a change here, given…
