Hi all,

I've been away for a while... :)

Can someone please clarify why 'Providing controls on the Web page that
change the visual presentation of text' has been removed from SC 1.4.5 and
SC 1.4.9
(as per http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2008/06/05-wai-wcag-minutes.html#item01).

The intent of the technique is not about swapping text and images, as
suggested by the survey comments. The intent is to provide a control within
the web page that will change the size of text within the page. The in-page
control aids people with cognitive disabilities and those unfamiliar with
browser settings.

With thanks,
Sofia
