NAME

mdbFontSize - Font Size

CONTENTS

Copyright

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’.
