       mdbFontSize - Font Size


       In some case, a font contains incorrect information about its size
       (typically in the case of a hacked TrueType font), which results in a
       bad text layout when such a font is used in combination with the other
       fonts. To overcome this problem, the m17n library loads information
       about font-size adjustment from the m17n database by the tags <font,
       resize>. The data is loaded as a plist of this format.



       FONT-SPEC ::=
           ’(’ [ FOUNDRY FAMILY
              [ WEIGHT [ STYLE [ STRETCH [ ADSTYLE ]]]]]
            REGISTRY ’)’


       FONT-SPEC is to specify properties of a font. FOUNDRY to REGISTRY are
       symbols corresponding to Mfoundry to Mregistry property of a font. See
       m17nFont for the meaning of each property.

       ADJUST-RATIO is an integer number specifying by percentage how much the
       font-size must be adjusted. For instance, this PER-FONT:

           ((devanagari-cdac) 150)

       instructs the font handler of the m17n library to open a font of 1.5
       times bigger than a requested size on opening a font whose registry is
