Font sizes/Screen vs. Postcript/Contour dropping lables

I am struggling with the problem of determining  font sizes in a device independent
way. Using the Hershey Fonts works ok but they are not very nice looking. The TT
Fonts are fuzzy (at least on my Unix system) and the Hardware Fonts tend to
produce unpredictable results in terms of the character size. This is particularly
annoying when using the Contour routine.  Depending on character size individual
labels maybe supressed.
