I had a similar question: is the type of + | - that can be found on pages such as: http://www.acmhs.org/what.htm adding to accessibility, detracting from it, or has positive and negative features relevant to accessibility that the effect is undetermined?

For those not wanting to visit the page: the "+" enlargens the content on the page, the "-" decreases the relative font size and "|" sets it back to the default.

Thanks.
