Subject: Custom Fonts Fail with Tables
Date: Sun, 1 Feb 2009 15:47:12 -0600	[thread overview]

When I change the default font to a custom font (such as Calibri or Arial),
the tables seem to get messed up.  For instance, if I have a table where I
have forced a column to a width of 40 that has an entry greater than 40
characters, it will correctly clip the entry and display the full item with
a tooltip.  If, however, I then change the font, the table becomes
disfigured, and a re-align does not fix it.  When I change the font back to
Courier and do a re-align, the table then becomes readable again.

Emacs 23 (latest EmacsW32)
XP Pro

I'm going to suppose that this is some kind of Windows fonts issue with
fixed-width fonts.  Are there any solutions?  I really prefer a font other
than Courier.
