Well actually it does, I'll elaborate since your viewpoint is so narrow...

If you have multiple windows open on your desktop (because *new* OS'es 
allow you to multitask) to enlarge the apparent size of the text in one 
window you must lower your screen resolution. Lowering your screen 
resolution decreases your desktops "screen area". You may increase the 
text size of some inflexible flash site but may no longer be able to fit 
your other apps in your desktop's viewport.

Hmmm must be difficult for you to distinguish which end to wipe, seems 
both end excrete the same stuff.

Yes, you can make the text large on this site, but only by enlarging the 
size of the browser window! If all one wants to do is see the text it is 
damn inconvenient to have to obscure the adjacent app windows with the 
browser window.

You have a misconception about the term "liquid layout".  The web is not 
paper, liquid layout does not mean zoom. Liquid layout for a website 
means that is remains usable regardless of not only the screen 
resolution but the browser's viewport aspect ratio. It should 
accommodate the *user's* preferences over the *designer's* since the 
website is for the *user* not the *designer*.
