hi gary

lotsa ways, including one way that involves no work on your part at all

the solution will depend on the technology available to you

if you are running ASP, the aardvark has written up one approach that you
can pretty much just lift as is --


if you are running Perl, see martin's article --


you may not need to go so far as to utilize cookies if you provide a link
that will append a query string to the url and use this to select a
different style sheet, e.g.


the "no work on your part" would be not to specify a font size at all in
your (single) style sheet -- you may then want to provide a link such as
"Click Here To Change Font Size" which goes to a page that explains to the
site visitors how to change the size of their fonts in their browser

this is explained in The Dao of Web Design at
