You don't say anything more and so I don't know how much do you know
of accessibility so far, but allow me to tell you that accessibility
goes far beyond the font size, there are problems most people don't even
imagine. By the way, I recommend you to use XHTML, as it will be easier
to parse for any software.
Also, note that it rules more over your structure ([X]HTML) than on
your CSS, because the important part is that the content is actually
there ---your CSS is, of course, important as well. I guess we could say
accessibility is all about the details, and just to start, check what
tables can and should convey. I recommend you to read Joe Clark,
he is my (and I think others) reference on the field.
Anyway, I'm just a beginner on accessibility myself, so this is just
part of what I've come to grasp on the subject. Good luck.
