Subject RE: Autosizing question:
Date Thu, 25 Jan 2007 09:35:00 GMT
I guess the issue is not in the font sizes but the screen dpi calculation.
Net result is if you render some text in "Ariel, 12" it will appear smaller
on screen as compared to same text & font rendered by windows natively. See
this bug report (and related bug 4016591) for details:
http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4168757 .

Subject: Re[2]: Autosizing question:

Are you sure the Java's font sizes are incompatible with Windows fonts?
Could you point me to the source of this information? I plan to add
drawing capabilities to HSLF and this stuff is important to me.
