A mark of distinction on websites is a facility that allows visitors to change the appearance of the pages they view on your site; personalisation goes a long way. One thing that it is very easy to do is to allow visitors to change things like the font size, the background and border colours or the colour theme in general. Although some of this functionality, life changing the font size for example, is already a control within the browser that the visitor can set any time they want, it is still useful to have something right there on the page so that the visitor doesn't have to go off hunting through menus to find the setting. Additionally, creating a single panel containing just the controls to change the visual settings of the site allows you to centralise this feature and make things even easier for your visitors.
