So IMHO, the lesson there is to "go with the flow" not try to change the base font size and measure other things on the page that need to be related in size to the fonts actually used in em instead of pixels.
Spot on. I size my body at 100% and go from relative ems thereafter (for font-size, margins, and paddings). I think this not only has the benefit of making the site accessible, but also extremely eases construction of a device-agnostic design.
Yep, always. Lawyers don't need jobs in web design (except perhaps in designing their own danged websites.) For I can imagine a person who is not "challenged" dictating suing a corporation for its website's "accessibility" problems. And I can foresee a countersuit from that corporation for the frivolous tasks entailed in avoiding or dealing with that suit.
What I find wrong is suing.
