MediaWiki had a default install and I see Imagemagick commented in
LocalSettings.php so I infer from your note that libgd is doing the
scaling (I was unaware beyond your reply). I'll try placing the .png I
reference in the files section for your demonstration. Thanks.

certain images, some of the text rendered has been misscaled and is
inconsistant with the surrounding image. The text is correctly located
on the displayed image. At first, I thought this was a problem with
the software generating the .png file from its source. These are
ChemDraw format images and are being converted by ChemDraw. In further
looking at the intermediate, I find I can correctly view the .png file
with other windows utilities without the font scale problem. These
utilities Paint and Windows Photo Gallery also have no problem scaling
the image. I have also attempted enabling .svg image format hoping it
would be a convenient intermediate, but; the added work to support
browsers without native .svg gave me pause.
Can anyone familiar with the .png scaling process
comment on why (only
certain) text in .png files does not scale properly? I'm using
MediaWiki 1.15.1. Thanks for any help.
Can you provide a sample of such misscaled images?
What are you using for scaling? libgd or imagemagick?
Seems like a bug you should pass to the software you are using for
resizing the images.
