An other problem when using TTF fonts is how to handle zoom levels when redraw screens.
wxDC does not handle zoom for texts.
Texts are always drawn using scale 1, regardless the DC zoom setup.

So before using any TTF font or so, this zoom problem must be solved.

It seems we are going to get problems because of wxDC pixel wide integer coordinates. Antialiasing and clear text needs fp coordinates and that would mean wxGC (Cairo backend on linux). Font rendering is already solved there (as Gschem shows).
