Re: Thai fonts small compared to regular characters

Hi, Ruben, 

Since you did not specify which fonts you are using, I don't know for sure.
But it is quite possible that you are using NECTEC's Garuda or Narasi
fonts which are indeed quite small.

Try using what I think is a newer font called "Loma".  Here is the
URL at

This font has very nice proportions and is very comprable with Latin sans-serif
fonts like Arial.
(It was very hard for me to find this URL again, so don't lose it!)
