Initially I thought it could be cache or a missing font size line in CSS but I was wrong
They literally put 8px as font size, even the css selectors are correct, so it cannot be a mistake by any chance
I think this website was built even before 2001. Also, if you change this kind of a website too much, and make it whatever you’ve imagined that it should be, sales would drop 70% same moment. In these “legendary” kind of websites, you do things one by one, easy and slow while making a lot of measurements.
They are in a limbo state, where profits are down (not entirely by the old system, but more by the world matter), they try to change things and “keep up” with the competition (as they seem innovative), but that truly is not what is the issue here.
It’s just slow for all kinds of reasons, and the best thing possible for them to do is status quo until further notice.
Your superficial look on the mentioned matter is just that.
