OK, I must not be making my point clearly. I am saying we have 
designated part of the view to be held at one font-size (large). The 
rest of the page can be resized at will. The font zoom does not scale up 
the background-image. The result in mozilla is that the text overflowing 
does not display.

a pixel is a pixel. it does not resize unless you change your resolution.
