Right. That is because the character heights are not calculated
independent of zoom. (There is a tlu() in the height calculation.) But
what I meant was, try doing your suggestion of putting the tlu back in the
GR_Win32CharWidths class and reverting my changes elsewhere. Then the
document layout changes going from say 100% => 80% or 100% => 130%.
The character Widths and heights should be exactly the same for for the
same run no matter what the zoom is. That is the secret of the new layout
The minus thing should go in anyway. It prolly helps get the font right. I
suspect that Windows will always screwup at 25% zoom because it appears to
be trying to "fix" the insane small font size requests we send it at that
very small zoom.
