mdbFontSize(5) The m17n Library mdbFontSize(5)
mdbFontSize - Font Size
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 ')'
'(' [ FOUNDRY FAMILY
[ WEIGHT [ STYLE [ STRETCH [ ADSTYLE ]]]]]
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
ADJUST-RATIO is an integer number specifying by percentage how much the font-size must be
adjusted. For instance, this PER-FONT:
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'.
