So does this DTP done with Wysiwyg use templates with fixed height and 
width? If so, an increase in font leads to less horizontal space for lines.

What I mean is that DTP industry and the users of DTP software may like 
another means, like a CSS regions but are they used to working with 
templates that when viewed on display devices or by user with a minimum 
font size, somewhat tear the 'what you see is what you get' templates apart.
