Response from the Working Group
================================
Example 3 does not fit the title of the technique as you suggested, since
the width of the container in this example is defined in em units. C28,
specifying the size of text containers using em units, provides relevant
examples for using em units.
Furthermore, the title of the technique is not appropriate for example 2,
since in that example the container does resize its height.

We will remove example 3 and change the title of technique to "G179:
Ensuring that there is no loss of content or functionality when the text
resizes and text containers do not change their width"
