              all,<br>
              <br>
              I am facing the challenge I'm sure many of you have had to
              deal with before:<br>
              <br>
              I need to make sure that the font used in my application
              looks as<br>
              similar as posisble between windows, linux and osx.<br>
              <br>
              I am currently using 12 point Helvetica, which turns into
              a 16 pixel<br>
              high Sans Nimbus L on my linux box messing up my custom
              widget's layouts.<br>
              <br>
              What is the best practise here?<br>
              Supposedly it is possible to compile a font into a
              resource which would<br>
              ensure almost identical results, right?! Has anybody ever
              done this before?<br>
              <br>
              Cheers,<br>
