WCAG 2.0 and resizing text

Hi Folks,

A couple of months ago, I remember (or am convinced that I do) reading a
provisional WCAG 2.0 Level 3 Success Criteria that talked about providing a
way to enlarge text via a control on the Web page itself, in addition to
browser tools for accomplishing the same thing (presumably because many
folks do not realize they can use browser options to resize text, especially
when they are not presented in the browser chrome).

However, I now cannot seem to find any mention of this. Did I dream the
whole thing, or was there something along these lines in a previous draft
version of WCAG 2.0

Thanks so much!
