Subject Re: Problem generating PDF with FOP 0.20.5 and Latin Modern fonts
Date Mon, 26 Nov 2007 11:13:40 GMT

but isn't this characteristics of 'differently sized' fonts there to
optimize readability and aesthetics of a font when typesetted in
different sizes? Scaling works fine, but I guess the result will be
even better if all availabe fonts are utilized?
