that is right, they are gone then. But then the space between the letters 
looks significantly different at 200% and at 100%.

In many ways wrong display of the document on the screen leads to the 
uernotbeing sureow the print version will look. Yes, te cutt-offs are gonein 
the print version but then the space between the letters is so different from 
both 100% and 200% that the user might not like the result at all. Looking 
correct on the scree is thefore a must.

In this case, when using both real caitalized letters and the rest in sall 
caps, it does print them all the exact same size to a PDF. Thie means that a 
word such as "Hello" appears as "h ello" because the white space is still the 
same bewteen the H and the e.
