Relative vs absolute units: There should be a WCAG2 equivalent at Level 1
for this WCAG1 checkpoint. The ability to change the text size in a page is
very important to people with vision impairments. The ability to resize
tables according to the size of the screen is very important to people using
PDAs

Proposed Change:

Create a new SC outlawing absolute units (I am happy to write this)

Although resizing is primarily a user agent function, we have added new
success criteria to address the author's responsibility for supporting text
resizing:

Level AA: Visually rendered text can be resized without assistive technology
up to 200 percent and down to 50 percent without loss of content or
functionality.

Level AAA: Visually rendered text can be resized without assistive
technology up to 200 percent and down to 50 percent without loss of content
or functionality and in a way that does not require the user to scroll
horizontally.
