The two sutblties you mention are correct. But I disgree with your
assesment that it is not unraseable to leave html as is. Even browsers

It would be ***very*** helpful for people with *slightly* deteriorating
eye-sight to be able to nudge up the font sizes in an email without
resorting to underlying accessibility features of the OS.
