Thanks very much to Prof Brian Ripley <ripley at stats.ox.ac.uk> for

Sticking a ruler up to my screen, I measure the "12pt" font at 13.5
pt (where 1 pt = 1/72 inch), and the "10pt" at 9.5 pt.  My window as
a whole is about 1.2x as large as I asked for, though.  So the "10pt"
font is a little small, but the sizes are roughly right (in R-2.1.0).
