Try to use a fixed width for the left and right columns.

It gets tricky.

I would like to have bigger characters. They become pretty small on a 
1280*768 with only 10".

Do not use px for the character size, use pt and you get the same 
character size independent of the screen resolution.

I also use mm for the unit. This is the same story. No matter what 
resolution the screen has, 10mm are 10 mm.
