No, he's just saying that the text zoom feature zooms all text.  Text 
zoom is an accessibility feature designed to enable users who can't 
read smaller text to be able to zoom all text on a page to make it 
easer to read.  It works this way in Safari as well.

The text zoom feature does not violate standards in any way.  I'm not 
sure why you think it does.
