That implies that you think that it is a problem. I'm
not convinced. There are rounding errors between
characters in the 2 abiword shots shown there. We'll
do our best to stabilize that math so that we
eliminate these kinds of buglets.
However, I think that we now finally get it right, and
AbiWord 1.0 and MSWord get it wrong. Also, MSWord
doesn't always break runs/pages correctly when
changing zoom, or when printing. We do.
I suspect that MSWord is rendering at 72 DPI, like the
win32 graphics class *used* to. Abi now renders at the
screen's DPI, which is 96. I had asked you to make
'GR_Win32Graphics::getDeviceResolution()' return 72,
and then report the results. What are the results?
In short, I don't see the problem. And if there is a
"problem", I don't see how it's a bad thing. If my
hunch is correct - that changing the DPI to 72 will
make it look "right" again - we're doing the right
thing and (in short) everyone else is wrong.
