I agree with this.  Those who need it will most often find it in some
way or another.  We should educate not proppagate here.  The reason the
guidelines were written in the first place was to avoide the need for
this sort of thing.

I've heard this a lot from various sources. Have any studies been done
of
this sort of thing? I remember that changing font size was one of the
first
things I learned how to do.

I think a better plan is to put some information on each site about how
to
change the font size in your browser if you need to. That way you make
your
own site more accessible, and you make other people's more accessible
too.
