Bear in mind the average user will use IE and won't know how to change his or her settings. Furthermore, at the moment most assistive technologies only run in conjunction with IE and will not work in Firefox. You can't just say "Well, it's the user's fault they use IE and Microsoft's fault that you can't enlarge text" because you'll still be inaccessible and you'll still be driving users away from your site when you can easily solve the problem by using a larger default size and not using fixed width fonts. Until IE fix their own problem it is something you do have to think about.
