The 11 Mile Wide Web Page

A gentleman wanted to illustrate the scale difference in size between an electron and proton inside a hydrogen atom, as well as the scale distance between the two. Scaling the electron to one pixel in size, the result is a proton 1000 pixels wide and a web page 11 miles wide (on 72 dpi monitors). And that is only covering the diameter of the electron's path.

You of course looked at the source code for the page?

Of course I did. It's about 11 miles high.
