Description Warren Togami 2003-01-21 08:19:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030115

Description of problem:
In Phoebe2 Mozilla began to default to the following fonts:
Proportional: Serif
Serif: Bitstream Charter
Sans-serif: Bitstream Charter
Cursive: Bitstream Charter
Fantasy: Bitstream Charter
Monospace: Bitstream Charter

1) Bitstream Charter seems to be ugly compared to the default fonts in previous
2) Bitstream Charter is not a Monospace font.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Phoebe2
2. Use Mozilla as a new user.

Actual Results:  
Poor font defaults, and Monospace is not monospace.

Expected Results:  
Better font defaults, (based upon usability tests?)

Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2003-01-21 18:35:47 UTC
Are you seeing those as the defaults in the fonts pref panel or actually being
used in the browser?

These are probably the patches that I'm going to be using in our Mozilla release.

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2003-01-31 09:49:02 UTC
Rawhide mozilla uses System fonts by default.  Should this bug be considered fixed?

Comment 5 Christopher Blizzard 2003-01-31 17:20:00 UTC
Ahh, yes.  Thanks.  I forgot to close the bug.  You're not having any more
problems with that, right?
