Sure, but where's the difficulty in that?

Or does "magnify" just create a sort of formatting sub-routine section and the closing magnify tag simply closes this sub-routine and reverts the style and settings back to those of the original text box?
I'd say it's closer to the latter of those two options. The "magnify" tag doesn't really alter the values of any previously set tags, it just applies magnification (pardon the redundancy) of a certain type text, textwidth, textheight, leading, or tracking. I believe it's the tag that FusionPro applies behind the scenes when a text flow is copy-fitted. More information can be found on page 66-67 of the TagsRefGuide.pdf of the FP documentation.
