Definitely. Hinting is always tied to a given size.

28 points? 28 pixels? 28 inches? At which resolution?
I'm using :
FT_Set_Char_Size(face, 0, fontSize * 64, 72, 72);
It's 28 points, and the resolution is 72dpi. My glyph is bigger in Word but
with ftdiff, I've got exactly the same size.
I guess that ftdiff uses Pixmap font ? I'm working with outline and activating
Multisampling for the anti-alisaing is time consuming, moreover the results are
always worse than ftdiff ( but better than without AA).
