The old-school method was to find a font size and textheight that
matches what you see on Mac, and on preOpenStack, set the text
properties based on platform.
It used to be that Windows fonts displayed larger and/or wider than the
same-named Mac fonts. That may have changed recently; my client says
Windows fonts are smaller now. At any rate, do some experimentation on
Windows to see if you can adjust the flow using textsize and textheight,
or by experimenting with different fonts.
