    Hello Telerik Team

    The Kendo framework looks good. Just few things.

    • The Themes. Even though you have about 5 in built themes with the framework, none of these themes comes provide a compact look. When you develop an enterprise business application, one of the main requirement is to show as many data as possible in a grid view. Your Silverlight controls does a good job but Kendo Grid has very large font sizes and row heights. I tried to use the theme builder to change it but was unsuccessful. May be it is possible as I am not a CSS expert but would be really good if you can include it with the in-built themes.
    • MVVM. It is a must. And I can see you have included that in the roadmap for Mar-12 which is great.
    Regards
    Paul.

    Hello Paul,

    We don't set the font or its size in our themes, you will need to set it yourself, something like this:
    html
    {
        font: 12px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    }


    Kind regards,

    Paul,

    I had the same problem.  Even though I had set the font size in my BODY and HTML elements in my stylesheet, the grid still generated with large fonts.  The way I solved this was to add a TABLE and TD entry into my stylesheet.  For example:

    table, td
    {
        font: 12px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    }
