On the subject of the zooming function, I think it'd be a much better idea to have an icon (like a small spyglass) at the bottom right hand corner of the window next to the adjust size icon.

By clicking and dragging on that the user could zoom the document in/out without having to fiddle with widgets at the end. Plus the icon can be made optional on windows and looks a whole lot more user friendly than either trying to find a suitable name for a multi-function scrollbar or worrying people about where they're clicking. Oh - and there is the adantage that when you've re-sized the window you don't have to move the mouse far to zoom into it :)
