Summary of Issue: Conflict between alternative options 1-4 and F69
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The "How to meet" document offers four alternative options to meet SC 1.4.4 (Resize Text), one of them simply "G142: Using a technology that has commonly-available user agents that support zoom". F69, on the other hand, describes the failure of clipping , trucating or obsurig text when applying text-only magnification to 200%. It seems that the How to meet" document should link support for page zoom to a (perhaps more modest) support for tex-onlz zoom. Just affordign page zoom (this works nearly always wiothout any extra effort) does not prevent the failure 69 when scaling text only.

Proposed Change:
Change logic in the "How to meet" document: G142 alone is not good enough. In addition, text-only resizing must also work to ensure a pass of F69.
