Discussion

From the bug:

Conceptually I have an issue with "Make this page foo", since to me it sounds very much like "Make this window foo"--expanding the physical size of the window/page--whereas we're really making the page content appear larger/smaller. If we want to avoid reusing "zoom" in the tooltip (especially since "zoom" in relation to windows has an entirely different meaning on Mac OS X), perhaps something like "Enlarge the content on this page" or "Make the page content larger" or something. (I'm not really happy with any of those...I'll keep thinking.)
Ditto on the menu items, though there we also have to keep an eye on length of the item name. —Sardisson

Post-bug:

My current preferences are "Scale Content Up" for the button label, "Enlarge the content on this page" (for parity with Text, giving a slight edge over "Make the content on this page bigger") for the tooltip, and "Make Page Content Bigger" for the menu item. —Sardisson
