Item Number: Success Criterion 4.1.2
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: GE
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
There is currently no item number relevant to this comment. Technique G96 seems to be the only place within the WCAG 2.0 documents that mentions anything about \"relative positioning\", or more specifically use of relative measures. Using relative measures is particularly important for low vision users who use a browser function to blow up the text size. It is also important for those using small screens like PDAs. 

Proposed Change:
This requirement seems to fit best under WCAG principle 4, regarding robust. Perhaps a new guideline 4.1.3, at level 2. something like \"Ensure that content can be resized without losing its symmetry\" Then in the techniques describing the use of relative measures for sizing block level items, text, images, etc.
