Hi all, 


Success criterion 1.4.4 covers cases in which text is truncated due to
resizing, but what about cases in which text is truncated or not visible in
its entirety at 'normal' scaling?


For example:


#css-width {width: 11em;}

<input id="UA-width" type="text" value="123456789012345678901234567890"
/><br />

<input id="css-width" type="text" value="123456789012345678901234567890"
/><br />

<input id="size-width" type="text" value="123456789012345678901234567890"
/><br />


The horizontal dimension of these three inputs is identical (in default
IE11@ 100%), but at least 10 characters are 'truncated'. 


Can 'up to 200%' be interpreted as '100% to 200%' legitimately?  (an earlier
draft of the guidelines had 50% to 200%)


That is, are the examples above failures of success criterion 1.4.4?
