Re: R: xy windows and WYSIWYG display of margin

I think the real default setting in question is
this one (copied from my .dfl file)

; O1 specifies how XyWrite handles screen/printer font mismatches in
graphic view (0=use printer font widths and do error correction between
words; 1=use printer font widths and do error correction between
characters; 2=use screen font widths and do error correction at the end of
the line)
DF O1=2

At least, modifying this setting is what causes margin behavior to vary.
The effect only seems to occur with TrueType fonts.
