Generating thumbnails of a page

P: n/a
Is there anyway to rescale a whole page homogeneously, so that
is looks like a thumbnail?

Yes, seems to be a MS extension. I suppose it could be possible
to zoom elements by hand, resizing the fonts and scaling the images,
but it's hard to do it homogeneously.

Good, fast, and cheap. Choose any two.

Did you try my advice?
Why not zoom the body element as shown?

Because it only works in IE.
