use the same case in both.
I am using the following code to show html text.
tfd.htmlText = "<Font size='20' face='Arial'>My text field</Font>";
tfd.height = 100;
But with the same font msword is showing bigger text.
I don't know why it's doing that, but the difference between the two fonts is 6pt. So if 24pt = 18pt, if that helps any.
And you're sure that in Word you are looking at the document at 100%? Not fit to screen or fit width or zoomed in in any way?
Thats what I was thinking before I tried it. Both are at 100%
