There is a drop down menu on the bottom right frame of all notebooks that 
let's you set the magnification for that notebook.

If you wish to have have generally greater magnification you can set this in 
the Option Inspector. Use Ctrl-Shift-O to bring up the Option Inspector. In 
the top box set it for Global Preferences. Then go to Notebook Options, 
Display Options. Set Magnification to what you want. You can use the drop 
down menu from the button on the right, or you can type in a specific value. 
This will then apply to all notebooks, including notebooks in the 
Documentation Center.

Speaking of 'font size too small', this is one of my chief complaints about 
the WRI web site. The font there is not only too small but it is also 
nonadjustable. In Internet Explorer, at least, the the Text Size option does 
not work on the WRI site, and although the Zoom function does work, the WRI 
web pages are not adapatable to Zoom and there are many resulting overlays 
of printing. This is especially evident in the MathWorld pages. This is 
really unfortunate because there is great content there. However, I find 
myself going to the Wikipedeia math articles simply because I can more 
easily read them. The Wikipedeia web-page design is far superior to the 
design used on the WRI site.
