I think, but I'm not sure, that Firefox is able to set per-site
preferences to a specific CSS style sheet. It would take some effort to
set up but with half a dozen or so style sheets I'd imagine you could
cover all the bases.

I'll log another vote for my favorite browser... Opera. It will handle
a) and b) right out of the box, and a quick test tells me that at least
in saved sessions the "zoom level" of individual pages is saved. It
also allows per-site style sheets which are loaded automagically when
the site is accessed normally.
