Good, important point.  In fact, one of my main excuses for using Lynx is
that it *removes* readability issues - I can get nice, large text, without
having to resize.  That, and the whole *nix geek cred thing <cough>.

If you use light-grey 10px Helvetica text on a white background, it doesn't
matter a damn how easy it is to read in Lynx.  Sometimes you've gotta make
your sites accessible to IE/Win users, too...
