What does this mean?

What is "Smallfont"? I, for example, don't have it (MS Windows XP as well).

Forms and Reports 6i.

Is there anybody that could help me?

I have created a map and a font. The font I have chosen is 'SmallFont'.
I have chosen this particular font because it was necessary for the font to be of a small size.

The map is in the server.

For a certain time everything was fine.
After a few months, suddenly, it crashed.
When a user, from his or her post, orders to print a map, the characters in the print-out come out all wrong.
Some of them are big, some of them small and it makes a map unreadable.

First, I thought that the server has been attacked by a virus.
I have made a virus scan without success.
Then, I tried to find out a file responsible for SmallFont, but I didn't know what was the name of the file that controls that font.
Anybody knows which file is that?

The map is very important.
As a temporary solution I decided to change the font.
I've chosen a different one, and diminshed the size to 8.
It works all right, but when I change the size to 6 (and I need a smaller size for all the information to fit in the page) the same confusion appears - the characters are both big and small.

One of the users mentioned that the problem started after they installed a new printer.
There are 4 printers, and I doubt this to be the cause.
All the four posts have been tested and problem with the font impression appeared in all of them.
The conclusion is that the problem lies within the server.
Anybody agrees?

Is there anybody able to resolve the case?
