      Well, my point is that the screen is made of pixels anyway, so that any
      fractional setting here would have to be rendered by spacing the lines
      unequally (e.g. lsp=0.25, if supported, would mean one additional pixel
      every four lines) which wouldn't be nice to look at.


      Best regards,
      Tony.
