Have you noticed the small 100% field at the bottom right of the
documentation center window? You can click on it and choose another
"magnification" which increases the size of everything, not only the
fonts. This is for the windows version, but I am quite sure a similar
functionality is there for the mac and unix versions, too... You can
also make another magnification the default by choosing e.g. 1.25 for
the option Notebook Options -> Display Options -> Magnification in the
Option Inspector. This will affect all notebooks and dialogs, not only
the documentation center, though...

hth,

albert
