Subject: 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.

Thanks

SC TEXT:

"Content can be displayed at a minimum width of 320 CSS pixels without loss of content or functionality, and without requiring scrolling in the direction of text except for parts of the content which require two-dimensional layout for usage or meaning.

Note: The width of 320 CSS pixels is equivalent to a browser width of 1280 pixels wide at 400% zoom.

If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this decision, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.

Thanks
