Hi all

I'm wondering if anyone has looked at what defines a basic platform.  This is a question raised by some testers recently in relation to 1.4.4 re-sizing text.  The answer seems to be "how long is a piece of string".  For example, if the user has maximized the viewing window for their browser and then gone into View>Zoom>200%, it might well not work.  If we are only talking about the default size of the viewing window (not maximized), then it might be another story.

I'm thinking that you work with the default size of the page and then enlarge to 200% and make sure you don't lose functionality - may not matter what the original size is, if it works, it works.

Any thoughts?
