inconsistent field appearance

Hello List,

Any ideas why the lineheight and/or fontsize of a text field would
appear ever so slightly different on different pcs?

I'm talking a couple of millimeters only. And one pc is a Vista
laptop, the other an XP.

Do I assume that this, like the appearance of color, is a hardware issue?

One line of attack I've tried is first emptying all the field
properties, setting these to the desired values and then reinserting
the text,  a la:

  set the fixedLineHeight of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to "false"
   set the textHeight of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to ""
   set the textFont of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to ""
   set the textSize of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to ""
   set the margins of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to 4
   set the textStyle of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to ""
   set the textAlign of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to ""
   set the style of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to ""

   set the fixedLineHeight of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to "true"
   set the textHeight of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to 60
   set the textFont of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to "Print Clearly"
   set the textSize of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to 50
   set the margins of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to 8,70,8,66
   set the textStyle of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to "plain"
   set the textAlign of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to "center"
   set the style of field "fAHeckOfWordChoices" to "transparent"

   put tAHeckOfWordChoices into field "fAHeckOfWordChoices"



I'm assuming that there isn't a solution, but just in case, I'm asking.

Thanks.
