I posted the following question on the rcp newsgroup a couple of weeks
ago but haven't yet received a response. I thought people over on this
side of the fence might have a better idea of what to do:

We're developing an application that will be used on systems where a
normal resolution monitor (say 1024x768) will be paired up with very
high resolution monitors (upwards of 5 megapixels.) The situation is
that sometimes our application will be used on the small monitor and
sometimes on the very large monitor.

So we want to offer some way to select a larger font for our application
when it's on the high-res monitor.

The simplest way to do this would be to just increase the size of the
system font for windows to use the large or extra large fonts, but then
this affects all applications on the machine making the low res monitor
pretty useless. So finally to my question. Is there a way to make
Eclipse think that the system font is in fact much larger than it
actually is?

Other ideas on a way to accomplish this are also more than welcome :)
