I don't know.  My guess is that there is some sort of issue with the build or specific version of Opera that you're using.  Do all pages exhibit the same behavior or is it just yours?  If it is just yours then you may have an issue.  However, if all pages in 9.6.4 are limited and the zooming works fine in other browsers, I'd say you pass still.  Opera should zoom to >200%, but I can't tell from here why yours isn't.

Andrew, please read this comment: "However, if your page does not zoom correctly beyond 150% then it sounds likely that you fail." Do you still think I passed?

Without seeing *your page* there is no way to answer this for certain. "However, if your page does not zoom correctly beyond 150% then it sounds likely that you fail."
