I have been passed some pages using Style Sheets but also with an added
"java script font resizer" 

I am looking for clarification on the role of the resizer. As far as I can
see the only effect is has is to allow the fonts to be resized in the
browser "Small, Medium, Larger, Largest". Where as defining the fonts in the
style sheet with a "pt" size appears to be acceptable.  The only drawback
that they will not be re-sizeable which is not a problem. 

Can some of you give my your opinion as to the why the font resizer is
necessary as all it seems to do is create problems. Along with the fact some
users will have javascript turned off.

Lose the resizer and define "pt" normally ? Any problems cross browser etc,
I have found none.
