Hi, Wayne and all,

Please note that forcing the text-size in CSS is not a valid test for SC 
1.4.4. Many pages may be using relative units for containers that will 
not be affected by this settings, so they will "fail" according to this 
test, although they are correct.

In addition, horizontal scroll does not mean a failure in this success 
criterion, provided that the text is readable when scrolling and no 
overlaps exist.
