What font and icon size do you guys use for HTPC web browsing and gaming? I'm sitting about 7' away from a 37" 1080p set and am curious what settings you use for readable web pages and settings on the computer.

What I do, is set my resolution to the highest it will go, 1920x10280 but as you've probably noticed it can be painful to read anything on the screen. I then set my DPI to large so that it maintains the resolution clarity but more or less increases the size of all text etc.
When gaming or watching movies the DPI doesn't mess with those settings, just for everyday desktop ones.
Using Windows XP,
Settings Tab>Advanced Button>General Tab> DPI to Large (may require a reboot)
