Question

Abnormal size in letters with diacritics?

How come, in some fonts, letters with diacritics are larger than the
rest, even though the same size is selected for all? How can I fix this?

Thanks!

Clarification Request
Haven't personally noticed this ...

so could you possibly give us a few examples you have the problem with? Would need font size, face, and weight you are using for each font.

Re: screenshot

The example is clear. But we still lack the information to be able to reproduce it (which is necessary first step):
- what font (face)
- what font size
- what font weight
- what program (MS Word, Wordpad, OO Writer)?
- what OS?

May I add one more thing?

Since Windows uses the printer to render on-screen display of such things, the printer make, model, version driver, Windows OS as well as video display settings can have an effect.

I had this one system where they complained of screen rendering at 640x480. It was hard for me to tell them "yup, it will look a little ugly."
