Well, in every browser I know (on Linux), you can setup your preferred
sitze for minimum and/or medium font size.

You did not mention what is the advantage of newsgroups over the mailing
lists, therefore I am leaving them out.

That should be tested, of course.

If the html is desired output, no need for a complex thing as Docbook.

DocBook is much richer markup language than HTML, so what is the need to
author in a complicated markup when much simpler tools can do the job?

Drupal is a PHP-based open-source platform and content management system
for building dynamic web sites offering a broad range of features and
services; including user administration, publishing workflow, discussion
capabilities, news aggregation, metadata functionalities using
controlled vocabularies and XML publishing for content sharing purposes.
Equipped with a powerful blend of features and configurability, Drupal
can support a diverse range of web projects ranging from personal
weblogs to large community-driven sites.
