Thanks Lars! That worked well, but wasn't quite what I was expecting. 
The characters are all narrower now, but the empty space between them 
has grown - I can't fit any more characters on a line than I could 

Is there a different (or perhaps further) command I should use to 
horizontally scale the _entire_ typeface, glyphs and spaces alike?
