How do I limit the smallest font size to make characters at least recognizable
I am using Debian Lenny with Tradition Chinese. The hardware is an ASUS M2A-VM motherboard with built-in ATI Radeon X1250 graphic display. The X.org device is using radeon.
I found that sometimes in some applications, very small characters are displayed. These characters are so small that their strokes are broken and hardly recognizable. I wonder if this behavior can be controlled in general. They should not be designed this way, but maybe there is some setting missing in my system.
One particular example is an application called gmorgan. Its menu is displayed in extremely small characters and impossible to read. Half of characters displayed in its panel are this small, but some are normal, and some bigger.
This application is written in FLTK, so I have wondered whether there is anything controllable related to this tool.
But there are some other application showing small characters in less important places. For example, when I click on the "Click Here to Find Similiar Thread" button on this panel, the window displayed is showing with very small characters, but they are still recognizable. I am using Iceweasel browser. I don't know if this is the same problem or not.
I am not familiar with general font settings. Can anyone help?
