Forgive me if I misunderstand, but isn't that an OS wide pref?

System Preferences -> Univeral Access -> Seeing tab -> Zoom. Set 'on', then use zoom shortcuts Cmd+Opt+= (in) and Cmd+Opt+- (out) or use Ctrl with either mouse wheel scroll or two-fingure gesture swipe (for both away is in, towards is out). IIRC, OS screen zoom is not enabled by default.

Later: seems I was wrong re the default: see here, (with screen grabs - though note the Snow Leopard scroll modifier is Ctrl not Shift+Cmd as in the grab)).

I'm not referring to zooming the entire display, but setting a specific workspace within the display to say 125%, 150%, etc on a per-window or, at least, per application basis (cf Scrivener and many other apps).

Yes, I know, I was just testing you guys (he lied, muttering to/about himself, 'you've only used that feature for nearly a decade, you  moron ....').

The aforementioned zoom feature has keyboard shortcuts too: Cmd+= for Magnify (zoom in), or Cmd+- for Shrink (zoom out). These commands are also accessible from the main toolbar View menu.
