Much better.  About the magic number: I looked at the value on Win2k and
WinME with different resolutions ( desktop->properties->settings, click
on advanced tab and change what windows calls "font size" but is really
changing the DPI, dots-per-inch, which is also reported).

DPI  Win2k  WinME
96    16      13
120   20      16

I assume that you are using a DPI of 96, and XP and 2k behave the same
way. The DPI you can retrieve with GetDeviceCaps( hdc, LOGPIXELSY). I
would recommend using the Win2k values computed by: DPI/6.
