Does anybody know what font-size v. font color v. font translucence indicates?

There’s not any “translucence” that I can tell.

Size is how important it is – So To Kill A Mockingbird is most important book, along with C&P, Hitchhiker’s, 100 years, etc. whee as A Farewell to Arms is relatively less important (relative to size comparisons).

Colors are just to help differentiate titles for aesthetics – no value assigned, if they used Wordle – just to help it not be a monocolor overwhelming layout.
