Yeah, much better (depending).
Changing the font sizing to some relative measure (percent or EMs) is
the first step.
The "depending" part depends on what you (or the client) mean by
"click of a button". If you mean the button that's part of the
browser's menu ("View > Text Size..." or some such thing) then
setting the font to a relative measure is all you need to do. (though
*some* browsers will even resize type spec's in pixels or points)
If by "button" you mean a button or link within your Web page, the
from the default style sheet to an alternate style sheet where the
base font size is larger (or smaller). So instead of having various
copies of pages, you *do* have various copies of the style sheet with
different font sizes.
That's my experience, anyway.
