The State of Fluid Web Typography | Better Web Type
there's a bit in here that says sizing type in px limits accessibility - which is contrary to what other articles about font units say. The techniques described here seem like an awful lot of faff and coding for limited improvement. Author concludes (june2019) 'fluid typography' isn't yet ready, better stick with 'responsive'

Don't Use Em for Media Queries
article saying that Safari's bug means MQ break points in ems are wrong when user is zoomed. Concludes that only pixels are consistent across all browsers.
Final paras: "But what if the user has changed their browser's default font size?"
The short answer is set an explicit root font size in pixels. It will override the user's custom default font size which is mildly annoying for the user, but it will force them to zoom instead which always behaves the way you want.

version 3 of fancybox, the jQuery modal zoom I use on tria site. There's a stackexchange answer to my question about size of zoomed image, with sample callback code. One can reduce the image to, eg, 50% of its real pixel size. Sounds good if it works and isn't slow.
