Summary of Issue: Why \"18 point or 14 point bold\"?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
It reads \"18 point text or 14 point bold text is judged to be large enough to require a lower contrast ratio.\" in the second paragraph of the \"Intent of this Success Criterion\". But we couldn\'t understand the reason why the working group judge that \"18 point text or 14 point bold text\" is large enough to require a lower contrast ratio. Are these sizes applied to the characters in any other languages such as CJK languages? We need the rationale or the  ground on \"18 point text or 14 point bold text\" in order to determine if it would also make sense in the Japanese characters.

Proposed Change:
Add the more concrete reason why \"18 point text or 14 point bold text is judged to be large enough to require a lower contrast ratio.\"
