*This question is essentially an expanded version of the unanswered half of Two strengthenings of "strong measure zero".*

A set $X$ of reals is **strong measure zero** if, for any $f: \omega\rightarrow\omega$, there is a sequence of rational open intervals $I_n$ such that

$X\subseteq \bigcup_{n\in\omega}I_n$, and

$m(I_n)=2^{-f(n)}$.

(This is not the usual formulation, but equivalent; and it makes the precise phrasing below nicer.)

My question is about what happens when we try to continue dissecting this class of sets - are there strong measure zero sets which are more "easily" strong measure zero?

*(Note: in this question, "easily" is interpreted* topologically *- the question Antirandom reals addresses what happens if we interpret it* computability-theoretically *.)*

Specifically, to each strong-measure-zero set $X$ we associate a relation $N_X\subseteq\omega^\omega\times\omega^\omega$, where $(f, g)\in N_X$ if $g$ is a cover of $X$ by rational open intervals such that the $n$th element of $g$ has width $2^{-f(n)}$. (Here we fix some nice bijection between $\{$rational open intervals$\}$ and $\omega$.) Intuitively, we'll say that $X$ is *nicely strong measure zero* if the relation $N_X$ has a topologically nice *selector* - that is, a map $F: \omega^\omega\rightarrow\omega^\omega$ such that for all $f$ we have $(f, F(f))\in N_X$. (Here, we use the standard topology on $\omega^\omega$.) Let's call such an $F$ a **modulus** for $X$.

For instance, if $X$ is countable, then $X$ has a continuous modulus. Note that this means that, consistently, we don't get any new information this way: "Every strong measure zero set is countable" (=**Borel's conjecture**) is consistent with $ZFC$. My question is whether - consistently! - there might be some interesting structure we can tease out by looking at the moduli.

One instance of this:

- Is it consistent with ZFC that there are strong measure zero sets $X$ which (a) are uncountable and (b) have continuous moduli?

For that matter, I don't know the answer to the converse question:

- Is it consistent with ZFC that there are strong measure zero sets $X$ which
*do not*have continuous moduli?

The continuous/discontinuous divide is the most natural one to me, but there are lots of others - e.g., Borel/non-Borel (or level-by-level in the Borel hierarchy), etc. And, of course, if we drop choice, there's the question of whether moduli exist at all.

- Is it consistent with ZF (or ZF+DC, ambitiously) that there is a strong measure zero set with no modulus?

(Note that models of determinacy *won't* help us here - AD implies that every uncountable set contains a perfect subset, and ZF proves that perfect sets don't have strong measure zero.)

This is, of course, a lot of questions; I'm most interested in the first bulleted question above (does continuous smz imply countability?), but I would love any information at all.
