I strongly recommend *not* using fixed font sizes. As an alternative, 
I'd suggest using alternative style sheets and a css-style switcher. If 
people find it too big (or too small), they can easily change the size 
for themselves. Using fixed point sizes is a definite strike against 
accessibility. Using fixed font sizes prevents people from resizing the 
font size using their browsers, among other things.

Here are a couple of links for different css style switching 
implementations. They can be used, of course, to do much more than just 
change font size.
