Does that work if the page designer has specified font sizes in an absolute
unit such as px rather than a relative one such as em?  Without completely
overriding the stylesheet?

Again, I haven't verified, but my gut says no.  And that's the case where
text zoom is essential.

(Of course, hopefully page designers know better than to do that.  But they
do exist.)
