I´ve opened a MS-word .doc file in abiword.

pixels higher than the original text.

As this is related to AbiWord itself, you'll get better luck discussing this at the AbiWord website. Like rendering web pages, each word processor renders a DOC file slightly differently. This is due to the fact that DOC is a closed file format by Microsoft that everyone else has had to reverse-engineer (which is a good argument for using something like Open Document Format, so you're not locked in).
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
