Hi,

here is my comment in regard of the current review for bug 2034 : 
http://trace.wisc.edu/bugzilla_wcag/show_bug.cgi?id=2034

the G142 technique need some rewriting because the commonly available 
term is not usable I think it must be something like :
G142: Using a technology in an closed environment where the used user 
agents support zoom

Technique number 3 : "Providing controls on the Web page that 
incrementally change the size of the text"
need a rewriting too because providing controls is not a guarantee that 
there is no lost loss of content or functionality."
I think it must be something like :
3. Providing controls on the Web page that incrementally change the size 
of the text and do not cause loss of content or functionality when the 
text is resized up to 200% or down to 50%

Furthermore, You must specify if it's for all the text present in the 
page or just for a part of it (for example the controls resize the 
content but not the navigation bar).
So it become something like :
3. Providing controls on the Web page that incrementally change the size 
of all the text and do not cause loss of content or functionality when 
the text is resized up to 200% or down to 50%

Finally, I think there is a need for another technique like :
"Using measurements that are relative to other measurements for the text 
sizing AND ensuring that there is no loss of content or functionality 
when the text is resized up to 200% or down to 50%"
to cover the case of text sizing with relative unit and block sizing 
with absolute unit and because in that case I don't need controls on the 
web page the resize text

By the way, you don't say if the text resizing functionality must be 
usable with keyboard only. For example, there is a native zoom feature 
in the flash player but it's accessible only with the right click on a 
mouse. Did that mean that every flash animation must have text resizing 
controls in the animation by itself ?

Best regards
A.Levy
