Font sizes are not consistent across articles
Steps to recreate
- go to http://reading-web-staging.wmflabs.org/wiki/Barium_nitrate and print article
- go to http://reading-web-staging.wmflabs.org/wiki/Barium_oxide and print article or http://reading-web-staging.wmflabs.org/wiki/Barium
Expected behavior Font sizes should be consistent
Observed behavior Font sizes vary
The table "Salts and covalent derivatives of the " at the bottom of http://reading-web-staging.wmflabs.org/wiki/Barium_nitrate defines a max-width:1300px; - this is too big for the printed medium so what happens here is the entire page aspect ratio is shrunk to accommodate the table (like resizing an image) leading to the smaller font size.
When hiding this the font-size reverts back to normal at the expense of clipping the table:
We must choose between showing all content inside the page or losing control of font-size. This seems like a product and designer decision.
