That may be because of default Fedora configuration forcing 96 DPI without
regard to actual DPI (which is what OS X & Windows do). Do all installed
browsers render http://fm.no-ip.com/auth/Font/fonts-ptdemo.html the same? If
that is the case, Webkit would have no control over it. You would have to
override the Fedora forcing of 96 DPI at either the system or user level. One
way that can work at system level is to set DisplaySize in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
If you use the binary NVidia driver you can set your choice of DPI directly via
xorg.conf. http://fm.no-ip.com/auth/Font/fonts-linux-about.html has general
information about dealing with DPI issues.
