Scaleable fonts for Priority 2 WAI guidelines

Hi all,

I am just about to embark on a new page build that needs to meet
Priority 2. It is quite design heavy and there are a few fonts that
will need to be replaced. I was just wondering though, to meet
priority 2, do all fonts need to be scaleable? There doesn't seem to
be anything clear on this. Obviously, if I use image replacement, the
text will be scaleable when images and/or CSS is turned off.

The other option is to use sIFR, but it's a bit more work and not so reliable.

Just wondering if it would be a requirement that all text needs to be
scaleable for WAI priority 2?
