Although it would require huge source bitmap images for clarity, IE5 does 
support zooming an entire image; simply right-click the image and choose Zoom 
In.  The w3c specs do strongly recommend UAs provide means for magnification 
(mainly for accessibility reasons), but explicitly excludes it from the 
language, since this is strictly a user interface issue. (I apologize I can't 
find the specific w3c document stating this.)

Did you consider embedding just the images (in PDF or another scalable format) 
in your HTML files?

I realize this is not a how-to email list service, however it seems many 
suggestions for improvements to the specs (including this and my own humble 
ideas) can already be done with existing specs, and a few informative words 
describing how the existing specs can implement the suggestion seems in order.
