    user-controlled text size... button?

    I'm wondering if there is a way to code a button to do the job of the IE 'text size' function. i.e. give the user the option of text being smaller/larger etc, without the user having to go through view>text size>etc etc.

    i've found a few solutions but they seem pretty complicated, i'm assuming that there must be something simple (like moi!) that i'm missing!

    ta in advance!

    I've always pondered the benefit of offering that particular service. Safari, FireFox and IE all have different scales for text so getting things consistent isn't always easy. JavaScript isn't the most reliable in all browsers either and not everyone supports cookies. I'm still all for displaying scalable and readable text, fixed width content and let the users browsing application determine the accessibility settings.
