Tap zooming in MicroB seems to be a mess in general. Sometimes it
resets to normal zoom on a new page, sometimes it remains zoomed in,
sometimes double-tap zooms closer, sometimes it zooms out. How much it
zooms seems entirely unpredictable. I just have to keep tap tap tap
tap tapping until it looks right, and half the time it thinks I am
clicking a link when I try to double-tap, which is probably a whole
other issue...
