The zoom functionality is sufficient to meet the current version of WCAG 2
at level AA if the following are met:
- the target user agent environment has access to user agents with zoom
functionality
- the content does not "break" when zoom is used.

The zoom functionality is sufficient to meet the current version of WCAG 2
at level AAA if the content does not require horizontal scrolling to read a
line of text on standard desktop/laptop displays in a maximized window (in
addition to level AA requirements). However, this is covered by a success
criterion that is currently at risk and is thus subject to change.
