Web designers know that it's easier to sell web sites with small text.
Small text looks good on screenshots printed on glossy paper. It's
terrible on computer screens, but web design is contracted to people
that went through art schools that emphasized paper media, and static
photoshopped look-alikes. They don't care about screen media. They don't
care about usability. They don't care about the text - it's just part of
the art. And small text looks "serious".

Entities that commission web sites always have the suspicion their
content is not that interesting, so looking good is better than having
large readable text you'll have to fill in later. Remember, most of the
people commissionning web sites didn't grow up with a browser.
