ddkillzer: this IS Windows XP SP2 running on physical hardware with Tango
Patcher installed. But you can confirm this bug on mac: set minimum font size
and find out, if Safari/Mac render all character equal size or lagrer.

Dave Hyatt: I assume that if I set up minimum font size to 9 points (see
screenshot), then no character rendered by webkit is smaller than this
threshold. Half of the webkit-rendered chracters are smaller on the original

PS: the fact, that M$ Windows (at least until XP) doesn't autodetect DPI
doesn't mean, that people don't set it up correctly and it also doesn't mean,
that all people use 96 DPI displays. The computer, where was screenshot taken,
has 125 DPI display and in last ten years I used various displays, but none had
exactly 96 DPI. Probably closest to this was my previous laptop with 14"
1024x768 display, which had 91 - 92 DPI...
