This is a very good point. Generally wikis are not known for beautiful page design and typography; they seem to subscribe to the (rather old-fashioned) idea that viewers browsing the page should apply their own style settings to read comfortably.

That said, and this is probably off-topic, but I find the Readability bookmarklet[1] invaluable nowadays when browsing most article-style web pages, including wikis.
