Question from Newbie

I am a newbie to the web accessibility area and am hoping to get some
direction as I am at a loss where to start.
I have taken a web site over and have been asked to make this website more
"friendly". Allowing users to increase/decrease font size etc. with the
click of a button (or link).
Currently this web site contains a stylesheet where the fonts are

My questions are:

1) Do I create various copies of the same web page (ex: contact.htm)
and have them set to various font sizes?

2) Can I change the hard-coded font sizes to percentages in the
current stylesheet?

Or am I not going in the right direction?

Thank you for any help.
