I really don't think the either the OP's images or mine suffered from "poor JEPG conversion and downsizing". Several posts earlier in this thread made it clear that the practice of enlarging the DPR fonts was the problem in both our cases. Bringing the fonts back to the DPR default size solves the poor-image-quality problem (yeah - as long as we've downsized and sharpened correctly)

In the thread I linked to above the IQ issues are subtle but there. DPR reduced the file size by over half. Though not a big difference it was enough for me to notice and had nothing to do with the fonts or browser.
It's easier to ask for forgiveness then to ask for permission.
