One solution maybe to use the IE proprietary zoom css extension

body { zoom:200% }

and leave the font-size as 100%, this will scale everything
backgrounds/images etc. so that you shouldn't see any of the problems you
describe.

I use these two bookmarklets to zoom in and out on IE5.5 and IE6
documents:

javascript:d=document.body.style;if%20(d.zoom=='normal'%20||%20d.zoom==0)
%20d.zoom=1.2;%20else%20d.zoom=d.zoom*1.2;void%200

javascript:d=document.body.style;if%20(d.zoom=='normal'%20||%20d.zoom==0)
%20d.zoom=(1/1.2);%20else%20d.zoom=d.zoom*(1/1.2);void%200

Jim.
