What do you mean by "is not in the same league"?
Which one is better? And can different truetype engines
lead to +-2 Pixel different Font-sizes?

I want to write a Java-Textcomponent, which text looks
the same on every platform (especially Linux und Windows). 
At least I have to get to know
why this is impossible.

Where can I get more information about this? I need this 
for my diploma thesis.

Thanx for your help (although its off-topic),
