javascript grid control looks terrible at large font sizes

Take a look at the activewidgets home page, and at the grid control there. I have my browser's minimum font size set to 18, so text is readable on my large monitor. The grid control looks awful at that size, as it has apparently made no attempt to scale the table row height with the font size. This makes for a really terrible demo of the capabilities of your product.

That's the weak point of the product : it does not allow to use em units. There is no attempt to include this as a feature.

However if you can do the math and translate in px, ... and implements function that does it. There are three : adapt line height to font size, adapt column width to font size and adapt control size to font size. Of course this suppose using font size expressed in %, especially if different cells use different sizes. The feature is then increase or decrease the font reference.
