Message Text Size change not allowed????

Hi, I found the place to set things like the default text size etc in the messages but when I try I get an error message saying -

Error: For security reasons you are not allowed to delete or change the 'default' template.

I have an older group of members and they find the text to small - How can I change it?

Edit the css file directly. YaBB currently uses px and the occasional pt for the font-sizes. You should be able to edit it as source - but better yet, open a copy in a text-editor and do your edits and re-upload it.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!
