@litherum: I think I just got confused. I'd been assuming that the term 'typographic points' you'd  used referred to physical points. E.g. if I put a typographer's ruler on the screen, '72 typographic points' would register 72 points or 1 inch on my ruler. But, in the quote above, you say something a bit more nuanced: 'OS (typographic)' that 'typographic points' is an interpretation by an OS and not  a physical measure.
