A bit of mixed feelings on this 1. I totally agree that using 16pt makes the content more readable. But people who need the font size to be 16pt generally know their browser can resize the text at will. That doesn’t mean designers can change their text to 8pt or anything unreadable.

I think I prefer to making the font size fit into the clients requirements (as long as it’s readable by the average user) but in the CSS use em’s and allow for the text to resize without breaking the layout.
