You've hit upon another point and that is not all disabled persons
can recognize, or see, your icons. It's a complicated world trying to
accommodate everyone.

As far as web size is concerned, I leave it to the user to determine
what size they want via their own browser settings. One can certainly
develop a site that scales with user zoom levels, like I've shown
here: http://sperling.com/examples/zoom/ or even in an entire web
site such as I've done here: http://earthstones.com/,

As far a contrast and inverted, you certainly can change those via a
php style switcher and use a different css -- that's a pretty simple

As for your UofM icon, I would agree that it is a disability, but
those graduating from there might not agree. :-) Go Green!
