I don't understand the problem here. The online documentation
open up in a window in the front end just like any notebook. If
you go to the menu bar and select Window->Magnification you will
get a menu list allowing you to select several different
magnification levels up to 300%. When you select one of these,
all of the text is re-scaled by that factor. Isn't this adequate?
