Hi Masi,

Works nicely using this simple CSS line:

.typo3-adminPanel * { font-size: 20px !important; }

Won't work because all content has already been sent at this time!

Plus, you cannot move the execution of $BE_USER->extPrintFeAdminDialog()
because the timetracker is not finished unless all content (of course,
except the adminPanel) has been echo'ed.

It would probably work using output_buffering, but is this worth the effort?
