Default Ten Point Five

Many times I will place an addendum at the end of an article with explanatory or digressive information, which I put in a 10 pt. font, while the main body of content is at 12 pt. The 10 pt. reinforces the relation and significance of the information to the overall layout.

But I’ve always wondered about that 10 pt. font, if these addendums are less read because of how small the print is. Now, I’m considering whether I should raise it to 10.5, which increase ever so slight, I think, makes readability nicely improved. Or would that be somehow ridiculous, for breaking with convention??
