Summary of Issue: resize text verssus zoom 
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
When auditing sites for compliance I come across many pages where the text does not resize (when this option is selected) but if zoomed to 200% it does.  The critera talk about resizing the text, but also about zooming the page.  Does it need to do both, one of, or one in preference of the other.  

Proposed Change:
Clarify what fails i.e if the text cannot be resized then it is a fail - or if the text resizes when zoomed it passes (dependant on presentational issues)
