I assume you're speaking of mimeTeX-rendered displays. Since LC 2.11.0
the fontsize increased. You can look into this file


for the corresponding lines following

  /*#define NORMALSIZE  (2)*/
  #define NORMALSIZE    (3)
  define NORMALSIZE       (4)

You can just comment out "define NORMALSIZE       (4)" with an hash (#),
then "NORMALSIZE (3)" will be 'defaulted'.

Then you've just to recompile mimetex.cgi and replace the original
binary under /home/httpd/cgi-bin/mimetex.cgi with this one of yours.

At the moment I'm not sure, but in consequence of this actions there
could be daily mail information about changed files.
