This is what I'm currently doing.  However, the page is also live before
rendering, and changes can be made, which render back to the database.

On modern screens, though, pixels are well under a point, and things are
too small to easily read.  I want the *engine* to display things at a
scaled size (well, I suppose what I *really* want is the engine to unscale
from the screen's scaling . . .)
