How about setting font-sizes in em and relative sizes?
1em for main text and in percents for others.
(I mean as default config of redmine)

I second this. Using absolute font sizes inhibits an effective use of zoom and browser settings for standard text sizes.

This would be very helpful for using redmine in meetings/presentations where sometimes people sit far from the screen.

I found out the most notable hindering comes from the fact that textareas and input fields don't scale because they don't inherit from body. See the attached patch for a possible solution.

Otherwise it's a pretty simple search and replace for font-size elements.
