BTW, FireFox does the same zooming.

I'd say you pass.  Read: http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20081211/G142

The test at http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20081211/G142 is to determine if the browser supports the website up to 200%

1. Display content in a user agent
2. Zoom content up to 200%
3. Check whether all content and functionality is available.

Internet Explorer 7 and Opera 9 provide a zoom function that scales HTML/CSS page content uniformly.

This is why I troubleshooted my document with Opera. As I mentioned before, the only version avaliable for Opera is 9.6.4. Statement # 3 is true in Opera, but only up to 150%,
Statement #3 is true in Internet Explorer 7 up to 200%. Do I pass or fail resize text, or disregard the Opera test and use another test?

Opera will zoom the page up to 1000%, whatever you did. Internet explorer
will let you change text sizes to a few different sizes, if you use the
right units for text size.

Hi Chaals - IE7 has the same type of zoom functionality that Opera has, as well as the view menu text size option that we all have grappled with selecting the right units to work with.
