I'm starting work on a site for seniors. The first thing I did was lay out my CSS using "em" for font size. They I got to thinking about how to get the message across to the user.

On the AARP site, a javascript is used to resize. I'm just wondering if it would be better to put a small message on the page .. like "Text on this site may be resized by ..." or go with the button images and script.

I know that the js and button images are small, but ..

How about both?

The a-/A+ buttons can be easy to miss, but they work well, especially in conjunction with cookies.

However, it won't hurt to have instructions somewhere as well.

Redundancy is a pretty key accessibility technique.
