I was using terminal and I think key access when I tried the zoom and it worked for them. I have to zoom a LOT for both, which is kind of a pain but still better than using the magnify button. I found where to change the font and font size in Terminal > Preferences today and finally figured out you then have to go to Shell >Use Settings as Default to make it stick.
I tried system profiler w/ zoom today. Option-Command-8 makes the font larger but then command-+ doesn't increase it any. I'll have to do what I did w/ a lot of help functions on my pc's and put the info into a word processor so I can control font size.
I'm not sure personal computers are ready for HD LCDs - Not until they adjust all the fonts/icon sizes in all the utilities. Thankfully, font and icon size can be increased in Finder using View > Show View Options. I don't need an HD LCD but there weren't any LD options.
