a replace function of a text editor (such as Edit pad) and do the
Replace <IMG
With <IMG onmouseover="increase()" onmouseout="decrease()"

Two usability problems: 1) this will give a single magnification, as
opposed to a series of stepped mags; and 2) imagine the pain of a person
moving his mouse down the page and accidentally passing over, say, three of
the smaller images on his way to clicking on a link to another page. Would
the link even be there when he got there, or would he end up clicking on
nothing, or worse, a different link entirely?

The issue as presented had nothing to do with image quality. It was
that he said that he could not imagine that HTML could scale the

That's splitting hairs. He clearly mentioned that he zoomed in to get a
more detailed view of a schematic, and that was what he couldn't imagine
HTML doing. Image quality is clearly required, as he couldn't see more
detail if all that happened was the pixels got bigger. If you're going to
get as literal-minded as that, then your example fails anyway, because you
didn't use HTML, you used VBScript.
