Description
Picking up font sizes, by default for metal on Windows, has the ability to break backwards

EVALUATION Yes, the default will be false and developers can enable this with the system property swing.useSystemFontSettings=true. Additionally you will have to set this to true if you want the high contrast theme picked up as well (assuming the user has chosen it on the desktop). ###@###.### 2002-04-16
