    In our product, we are currently use absolute font sizes to maintain the consistensy across different components. I was wondering if there is a way to configure the XEP font table that is used when converting the absolute font sizes? According to XSL-FO specifications for absolute-size attribute as below, the font table could be computed according to the font family or font quality and availability. We have a requirement to have a minimum font size for our project which I believe is different than the default xx-small value in the XEP font table. So is there a way just to set the xx-small size in the font table and let XEP compute the rest of the value in table? If not, we are thinking to have font table of our own and convert the font size to a <length> value when generating FO. We are thinking to compute the font table in a similar fashion as XEP does. Would you mind sharing some knowledge as how font table is computed in XEP? Is XEP using a different table or different scaling factors for different font f
                            An <absolute-size> keyword refers to an entry in a table of font sizes computed and kept by the user agent. Possible values are:
                            [ xx-small | x-small | small | medium | large | x-large | xx-large ]
                            On a computer screen a scaling factor of 1.2 is suggested between adjacent indexes; if the "medium" font is 12pt, the "large" font could be 14.4pt. Different media may need different scaling factors. Also, the user agent should take the quality and availability of fonts into account when computing the table. The table may be different from one font family to another. "
