mdbFontSize(5)			 Version 1.5.5			mdbFontSize(5)

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'.
