Well you've shown that it isn't so bad. But there's another detail to 
consider, when resizing: font size. Font size can (and should be) 
specified in typographic points, in order to ensure that text is both 
readable and not too large. i.e. in units which are 1/72". Resizing when 
text size is specified in inches, i.e. in its actual, system 
independent, size, while width and height are specified in pixels i.e. 
in system dependent units is the best way to create the mess which is 
there since the early times of Delphi.
