agendum 2. "Survey Results" taken up [from kford]
17:25:25 [kford]
Taking up #38 Text Configuration
17:26:33 [kford]
Jan Proposal 3.6.2 Text Scale Distinctions: when rendered text is rescaled, the user has the option to either preserve or remove distinctions in the relatives scales
17:26:33 [kford]
of rendered text. (Level A) 
17:30:37 [Zakim]
17:30:56 [Zakim]
17:31:10 [AllanJ]
KF: MH comment in survey. Requires AT. should expand to include Jan's wording
17:31:17 [Jan]
zakim, ??P11 is really Jan
17:31:17 [Zakim]
+Jan; got it
17:32:56 [AllanJ]
JA: +1 Jan wording
17:33:08 [AllanJ]
MH: +1 Jan wording
17:33:21 [kford]
GL: In general proposal looks good. One question does current proposal allow wiggle room that would allow multiple designs that might be good or bad.
17:34:50 [kford]
GL: One can imaging scaling up all items at same rate.
17:35:26 [kford]
G: Second is like a word draft mode.GL: Option 3 I want everything to scale at same relative percentages but don't make anything beyond size X.
17:35:46 [Jan]
q+ to say also could set a floor
17:35:55 [kford]
GL: Do we want a UA author to be able to do this?
17:36:11 [kford]
GL: Capping size is more complicated.
17:36:34 [kford]
KP: What I want is a particular type of text in one font and everything else in something eolse?
17:38:15 [AllanJ]
KP: change size by class of text (headings, etc.)
17:39:35 [AllanJ]
KF: this is a good idea. perhaps should have a requirement. build user css based on page
17:39:56 [kford]
JR: Another thing to think about is that the user might not want something below size X. I think we need to rewrite taking this all into consideration.
17:40:11 [AllanJ]
JR: set floor and ceiling. need rewrite
17:40:33 [kford]
GL: A floor and a ceiling are good ideas. We have to think about the level that these are. Setting everything to a given font may be easier.
17:40:56 [Jan]
ack Jan
17:40:56 [Zakim]
Jan, you wanted to say also could set a floor
17:41:13 [kford]
GL: I could imagine the single size being level A and floor and ceiling being AA.
17:42:10 [kford]
Some clarification around rendered text and whether this applies to content and UI.
17:42:27 [kford]
As written this applied to rendered text.
17:44:58 [kford]
Some discussion around how W3C specs could reference ISO standards and any plans.
17:46:44 [AllanJ]
JR: can refence informationally to other standards
17:46:50 [kford]
17:47:51 [AllanJ]
KF: Jan proposal, but many expansions, should rewrite.
17:47:58 [AllanJ]
JA: summary: scale fonts, min/max, floor - bring anything smaller upto a min size, remove distinctions when scaling,
17:49:21 [kford]
Action: Greg to update 3.6.2 for text sizing.

17:54:37 [AllanJ]
JR: what is data of user supplied style sheet
17:54:45 [AllanJ]
KF: low
17:55:19 [AllanJ]
users don't know about the ability, difficult to write a css
17:56:35 [kford]
GL: When I worked on Windows we added a range of high contrast color schemes. But we got a lot of complaints when there was part of the UI that the user couldn't customize. While the number was low, for those who needed it it was critical.
17:58:14 [AllanJ]
KF: What about the Kindle. should they have user style sheets.
17:58:32 [AllanJ]
GL: if they wanted AA
17:59:03 [kford]
Group is in agreement that user creating stylesheets being able to create is AA.
18:00:24 [AllanJ]
KF: A switch or disable author CSS, AA is create apply user CSS
18:00:45 [Jan]

GL: change non-modifier, and/or change modifier key
