I have some HTML like this I want to display in the report:
<font size=1>very small</font><br>
<font size=5>very large</font><br>
<font size=6>the largest</font>
This displays nice in any browser and shows different font sizes. Now, in Jasper Reports the font size=2 seems to be the "normal" font size. When I explicitely add <font size=3> in the third line, this gets printed bigger.
I believe you see these values as absolute values, but according to HTML these are relative values in regard to the "standard" font size. I believe, the font I define for a control should be considered the standard font, and should always relate to font size=3, and the other numbers should be threated relative to it.
This is even more important since I want to display the HTML in different contexts, having different base fonts and font sizes. Please fix this (maybe allow me to define a property that I can set to alter the interpretation behavior of these font sizes so existing applications wont break).
Or is there another way to specify relative sizing in Jasper?
