Increase font size in Safari temporarily (resets on refresh). It's only Safari where I find text a problem, in everything else you can default bigger (Mail, Kindle, Alien Blue, Reeder, Instapaper etc) so text looks fine, just not spectacular like on 3rd gen and beyond.
Where poss, I use the Reader function in Safari quite a bit on the mini.
