I can do everything except get the actual font size to increase!
I know some people will disagree* but I say: don't specify an absolute font size at all. Your user already has a default. At worst it's their browser's built-in default that they're accustomed to seeing. At best it's a preference that they've intentionally changed.
If you say nothing about font size, the page will come out in the user's default size. Anything you express as a proportion
1.2 = 1.2em = 120%
will build outward from that size.
Inline for testing:
<p style = "size: 66%;">two-thirds</p>
<p style = "size: 150%;">one and a half</p>
Now shift that to the CSS and you're good to go.
* Apparently because humans whose monitor size and/or eyesight is significantly different from the site designer's are just so much ### and nobody could possibly be expected to give a ### about them.
