Ouch!

After:

What after should look like:

Note that none of those images actually show what they are intended to show unless 
either they are opened in a viewer which has adjusted their size such that the 
embedded 1" images in fact measure 1" wide, or the viewing system has a 144DPI display.

In summary, an ideal foundation for any site requires (even though not addressed in 
WCAG):
1-do not size objects in px
2-do not deviate body text from 1rem. IOW, deviate text size from 1rem only as 
contextually appropriate (e.g. subscript, superscript, footer, heading, caption, etc.).
