Although I never did anything quite like the Section508.gov layout controls, I did implement style sheet switching on www.eeoc.gov, to provide four options: "normal", linearized, and two large font/high contrast versions. I heard from a lot of people who thought it was a great idea and wanted to know how it was done so that they could implement it on their sites. 

I never - not once - heard from someone who actually used it to make reading the site easier. It's now no longer an option.

I find the form on the section508.gov website difficult to get around
since I don't need it and further, while we are talking about that site,
I find it difficult to remember that I have to double click every time I
want to wander off of their property.

Your typical user does not know or understand
instruction on how to change font size using the
browser.

I do like the Section 508 web site's implementation
to adjust font size, see
http://www.section508.org .  They have a form that
adjusts the font size and type.  This is smooth and
a cool technique.

Would be great if this code could be readily
available to all for free in Active Server Pages,
JavaScript, CF or Java.
