The question is that IF the visitor *needs* to have larger type? If so,

it'll need an extra large setting when Google doesn't then something is
wrong with the size of your type, and it is a burden for any user.


Statistics show our aging population is growing rapidly and losing their
ability to see well. A link to a version with larger type can be very
helpful to the techsavvy or non-techsavvy user.
