Isn't it possible to design an attractive website without excluding users

Allowing fonts to be resized excludes *no one.* Fixing them excludes *some*
people. Is a fixed font size really the core of an attractive website? I
think not.

The choice is: which is more important, look and feel, or usability? Make
your pwn chice; just know the consequences.

And if anyone would like to have a religious war about it, go read the
archives. It's all been said.
