I'm trying to use the Fixedsys Excelsior truetype font
available at http://www.fixedsys.org.
When I try to use this font in X-Chat 2.0.8, it doesn't
render properly. The characters are distorted at any
point size. (The closest thing to the real Fixedsys
bitmap font at 9pt is Fixedsys Excelsior at 11pt.)
On my Fedora Core 1 installation with X-Chat 2.0.6a
pre-bundled, the font renders perfectly. It looks and
feels the same as all other applications in Windows
render the font (except X-Chat).
Now, I realize that "there are no Windows developers
working xchat, so Windows bugs go unread," however,
this is the only thing I that is getting in the way of
me making X-Chat my main IRC client (and might help
others to use it also), so any help you can provide is
