Description Henrik Pauli 2011-06-17 15:03:38 UTC
The number 1 in Sans (not mono) seems slightly narrower than the other numerals, which makes it inconsistent with Arial, for example.  And doesn't look nice either.

Comment 1 Pravin Satpute 2011-09-19 09:36:38 UTC
Hi Henrik,

  I did comparison of number 1 with 4 and both character has same width.

  Let me know steps to reproduce (or compare it with which character) so i can better understand and make necessary corrections.

Comment 2 Henrik Pauli 2011-09-19 13:38:47 UTC
This is peculiar.  It doesn't show in Google Chrome, but it does show in Firefox and Konqueror, although all of them seem to use Slight hinting.

I'll attach a screen shot, maybe that helps.

Comment 4 Pravin Satpute 2012-02-13 16:47:02 UTC
Understood the problem. kerning defined for 1-1 pair, it reducing its width.

Hi Caius,

  Do you remember any particular usecase for this kerning pair? if not i think we should remove it to make font consistent with Arial as mentioned in this bug.
  Same problem with Liberation Serif and Narrow as well.
