Sample Project


   The same font size used for a Label and Entry produce different results (size). 

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   1. Run the attached project on WP 8.1

**Actual Results:**

   The Label and Entry font sizes appear different. 

**Expected Results:**

   The size of the text should be the same since they have the same font size. 

**Build Date & Platform:**

   XF 2.0

**Additional Information:**

   The Entry FontSize has a binding to the Labels font size so that they are always the same. 
   On iOS and Android this looks OK. 
   On Windows platforms (WinRT, WP) this does not produce the expected results.
