XFLD is just a representation of font details. It has nothing to do with
whether the font is client side or server side, and there is nothing mutant
hybrid fake about it.
Your problems seem to stem from expecting to get a particular pixel size when
you are in fact specifying a point size for the font you are requesting. If
the font is coming out too big, try reducing the size you are asking for.
