OK Jordi thanks. A couple more questions.
1. Is this the full patch that your to commit?
2. As it stands now the only difference that I can see between the current
code this is the use of negative values for the fonts sizes.
#define NEW_SCALE 0
means that NEW_SCALE is defined. So code following a #if NEW_SCALE is
.. This code is included..
So if you're happy with the result of the code I say go ahead and commit
and we'll ask other Win users/developers to try out the 2.0 branch and
tell us what they think.
