NAME

       mdbFontSize - Font Size

DESCRIPTION

       In some case, a font contains incorrect information about its size
       (typically in the case of a hacked TrueType font), which results in a
       bad text layout when such a font is used in combination with the other
       fonts. To overcome this problem, the m17n library loads information
       about font-size adjustment from the m17n database by the tags <font,
       resize>. The data is loaded as a plist of this format.

       FONT-SIZE-ADJUSTMENT ::= PER-FONT *

       PER-FONT ::= ’(’ FONT-SPEC ADJUST-RATIO ’)’

       FONT-SPEC ::=
           ’(’ [ FOUNDRY FAMILY
              [ WEIGHT [ STYLE [ STRETCH [ ADSTYLE ]]]]]      REGISTRY ’)’

       ADJUST-RATIO ::= INTEGER

       FONT-SPEC is to specify properties of a font. FOUNDRY to REGISTRY are
       symbols corresponding to #Mfoundry to #Mregistry property of a font.
       See m17nFont for the meaning of each property.

       ADJUST-RATIO is an integer number specifying by percentage how much the
       font-size must be adjusted. For instance, this PER-FONT:

           ((devanagari-cdac) 150)

       instructs the font handler of the m17n library to open a font of 1.5
       times bigger than a requested size on opening a font whose registry is
       ’devanagari-cdac’.
