Question about Windows fonts in Linux
I'm a Web developer, so of course I installed ies4linux with Wine so that I can see how Internet Explorer renders my pages. I also copied The Times and Arial fonts from my XP installation so that I could get a better idea about exactly how pages will look...
..but I've noticed that the Windows fonts seem to render much larger in Linux. This didn't seem like such a big deal at first, because it just meant I can't really test in IE without booting into XP... but then I realized that some Linux machines will have the Windows fonts - such as my little brother's computer, which is running Ubuntu with the "restricted extras" package installed.
Some of the Web pages I create depend on correct sizing of fonts in order to display parts of the page as intended, so this creates an annoying problem.
I doubt there is anything I can do to address the problem, but I am still curious if someone can tell me why the Windows fonts render so much larger on Linux??
