 I am curious how people adjust the size in the browser?  In IE the only
way I can find to adjust the text size beyond what I get by just
switching Windows into high contrast mode is to create my own style
sheet - am I missing some other technique?  Changing the display
appearance in Windows does not give me the option to change the  default
font size for applications.  Setting High contrast mode in Windows does
set IE's font size to "largest" but this doesn't give 60 pts.   In
Firefox I can set the default font size.   And, this technique will fail
(there will be overlap of the character based heading with the paragraph
text) unless I turn off CSS - then everything works okay.  Which to me
seems like a reasonable work around?

You can set a default font size in IE by going to Tools>Options and
selecting the Fonts... button. This sets a default font to use when font
size is not hard coded by the author. Selecting the Accessibility button
brings up a dialog that tells IE to ignore author-specified font sizes
.
