font sizes different on UK machines?

I thought if I specified Veranda 10 in my application that, if Windows was
English language, the font would be the same everywhere. But I just saw a
screenshot of my application from a site in the UK this morning and... the
font's a different size. Someone please tell me fonts aren't different
depending on the country? Is there a fix?

Web application or Windows Forms application? For Windows Forms apps:
Maybe the machine is running with another # of dpi, for web forms, maybe
you have used a relative unit like percent or em and the user has
selected larger fonts in Internet Explorer or his webbrowser.

Windows forms. Don't web application questions belong in another newsgroup?

What do you mean by # of dpi? If it matters, this is in the context of a
grid control; on the UK machine the letters are shown a little too big for
the grid lines, which looks really bad.

There are separate groups for web forms and windows forms.
What do you mean by # of dpi?


Large vs. small fonts in the display settings.

On the forms properties, have you got AutoScale set?? It looks like it's
True by default.
I'd try changing your screen resolution and font sizes and then
experimenting with the look of your form with AutoScale set True and then
False.
