Very good answer @charles - thanks for the expanded details. I'll leave the original answer as accepted, but following your approach makes a lot of sense.

comment Do progress bars help completion rates?
One note - the first paper cited (Matzat, et al) finds that progress bars generally negatively affected completion rates on surveys or had no impact. With some caveats they say that it may be preferable to leave the indicator out completely. Worth a read.

comment Usefulness of on-site text resize tools
Good feedback -- placement of these is a concern, I think. I've often seen these text size tools lumped in the with print/email functions as tiny little icons. Not easy to see for someone who already is having problems reading tiny text. Definitely don't think we can rely on anyone using the "zoom" tools within browser. I barely remember how to use those.
