I feel like I'm missing something here: in a windowed application with window resizing allowed, resizing the window doesn't just change the window dimensions, it scales the content as well.

This is not standard behavior for desktop applications on any OS platform.

How do I keep a static scale of the contents when resizing a window?

thinking on it, Dbpro did scaling also I think, but i assume that was due to the d3ddevice

i think you need to set the VIRTUAL size as well so;
SetWindowSize( GetDeviceWidth(), GetDeviceHeight(), 0 )
SetVirtualResolution ( GetDeviceWidth(), GetDeviceHeight() )
