Well, sure. But if you measure your "8-point" characters, you'll find
that they aren't 8 points high, either--more like 15 points.
You might try setting DPI correctly, choosing a font size about double
your current choice (or a point less) and letting the font engine do the
scaling. I'd be interested in how you find the results compared to your
current settings. They will (in theory) at least better approximate what
the font designer had in mind.
