The Program Details page is the only screen that's displayed using 
MythBrowser.  MythBrowser supports zoom on all pages it displays.

I doubt the plan is to replace all of the MythUI screens with HTML 
screens.  :)

As of now, user-level scaling of fonts in MythUI screens is not 
supported and, TTBOMK, unless we write some code to do automatic layout 
of screens, will not be supported.  Basically, if you change the font 
sizing in the theme, non-text elements that are meant to align with 
theme elements no longer do so.
