The document *is* displaying correctly. Unless you've explicitely
specified "it must fit on X pages" somewhere (and current OO.o does not
allow this) *nothing* will ensure its pagination does not change
slightly over time. The first thing OO.o or Office do when loading a doc
is to repaginate it, precisely because font sizes are not invariants.

You want pixel or page-perfect rendering you export your doc as PDF with
embedded fonts. Or you make OO.o implement fixed-number-of-pages
scaling.

The sad thing is people don't care about what you're asking - if they
did word processing would not have rolled over DTP in the last decade.
In a word processing context all you have is a text flow (as in
free-flow).

You write the document in Fedora with Fedora fonts you'll see if it
displays correctly on windows.
