Yup -- so far, anyway.

I'm back with xfd loaded now.  Sure enough, the two are distinctly
different; the former is smaller than the latter, although not so tiny as
to be invisible as in gvim.  This sure sounds like a lead, though!

I am leery of posting attachments to the mailing list, so I haven't
attached screen shots of the xfd layouts.  In addition, I ran xlsfonts
and it generated 2582 lines; that's probably more than I should paste
here.  Let me know what information I can provide, however.

Soooo...  What do I do to make my fonts all be happy?

Thanks again & HANN
