I am aware that Firefox has a zoom feature, but I can never tell how much I have zoomed up to. IE has a feature near the Windows clock that lets you know how much it has zoomed up to. Opera has the option to view at certain levels.
 
I disagree with Firefox since I can never tell how much it has zoomed up to..
 
Also, a question, since Opera 9.6.4 fails (only 150%), why do I pass Resize Text (1.4.4)?

BTW, FireFox does the same zooming.
 
I’d say you pass.  Read: http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20081211/G142

The test at http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20081211/G142 is to determine if the browser supports the website up to 200%

 

Procedue:

1. Display content in a user agent

2. Zoom content up to 200%

3. Check whether all content and functionality is available.

 


Internet Explorer 7 and Opera 9 provide a zoom function that scales HTML/CSS page content uniformly.

 

This is why I troubleshooted my document with Opera. As I mentioned before, the only version avaliable for Opera is 9.6.4. Statement # 3 is true in Opera, but only up to 150%,

Statement #3 is true in Internet Explorer 7 up to 200%. Do I pass or fail resize text, or disregard the Opera test and use another test?

Opera will zoom the page up to 1000%, whatever you did. Internet explorer  
will let you change text sizes to a few different sizes, if you use the  
right units for text size.

Hi Chaals - IE7 has the same type of zoom functionality that Opera has, as well as the view menu text size option that we all have grappled with selecting the right units to work with.
