"What I find strange is that bbc news page, does not alter, no matter what font size you choose - so there must be a way."
BBC News may appear to do it but the point is that they *shouldn't*.
In fact what has happened with BBCNews is that they have used a fixed font size and IE doesn't resize those in its default setting. Firefox and Opera will resize the BBCNews pages (I've just tried it) and I believe that IE 7 will also.
You can override IE's default settings to allow font resizing: it is one of IE's accessibility options.
Anyway the main point is that current accessibility guidelines state that fonts should not be fixed.
