Font Size not scaling right on every device

I have Universal app and since my Windows Phone version is done I have done testing on several different Devices.

I have noticed that font size is not scaling right on every device (font familiy is Georgia).

For example, on Lumia 930 and Lumia 530 DS, font size is normal like it should be, but on Lumia 820 and Lumia 920, font size is not scaling, so my words got sliced in half. I can show you images for example.

What should I do to get this fixed and get working on every device?

Thank you.

You need to make either make the font smaller or textblock wider to allow for variations in the width of the rasterized text on different PPI devices. In the 920 image the first line is wrapped at the "-", which causes the second line to wrap and be pushed halfway off the bottom of the textblock.
