I've been trying to set my DPI to 96 (in all places) around my system ...Now I 
just figured out the actual DPI for my LCD is 86.  I like the way my fonts 
look now (and their sizes) with 96 dpi....  Can we say the correct thing is 
to set my system to 86 dpi and then change the fonts on my apps (to probably 
one or two points higher)?
