    Im using a printer for two computers (mac-os x and windows xp)...
    i was testing out my printer and there are no problems for both operation systems..

    i printed a pdf file as i expect both operating systems to print the exact same thing...
    so one pdf file printed through windows xp and the exact same pdf file printed through os x...

    here's what i noticed...both printed copies has the exact same font (times new roman) but the sizing and spacing was a bit different...you can easily tell that the mac printed a bit larger compared to xp....

    its not a big deal...and im not trying to fix it..i just wanna know why this is...

    Weird.. the only thing I can think of is slight differences in the drivers...
