Why do siddurim, particularly older ones, always have random sized letters for each paragraph? AFAIK the only siddurim that use a single sized font throughout, are Artscroll siddurim.
For the same reason your heart constantly expands and condenses. It's a sign of life.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

There's nothing comparable to a seder. For without it, the world and all that's in it would cease to exist.

"Organization" as in being organized. I assume that's what he meant, he can correct me.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

The square nekudos they fixed. But their siddurim are still not accepted at the major yeshivos.
