Re: CFC Add Zoom Content (formerly Resize content) to Editors Draft

Hi all,

I placed older SC text into the CFC - The current SC text for this one 
is: [1]

Content can be zoomed to an equivalent width of 320 CSS pixels without 
loss of content or functionality, and without requiring scrolling on 
more than one axis except for parts of the content which require 
two-dimensional layout for usage or meaning.

NOTE

320 CSS pixels is equivalent to a starting viewport width of 1280 CSS 
pixels wide at 400% zoom. For web pages which are designed to scroll 
horizontally, the 320px should be taken as the height rather than width.

NOTE

Examples of content which require two-dimensional layout are images, 
maps, diagrams, video, games, presentations, data tables, and interfaces 
where it is necessary to keep toolbars in view while manipulating content.
