Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212170
cyrillic vs latin: same glyphs appear differently
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
Some glyphs in Cyrillic and Latin are actually supposed to look the same.
These are "a", "c", "e", "o", and "p" with round-tops for example. I am
attaching the picture which demonstrates that freetype treats them differently
in dejavu serif font. The Cyrillic counterparts are too tall at some sizes,
while Latin versions are always ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
At some font sizes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. http://lenta.ru which uses Cyrillic serif in a spectrum of sizes with
occasional (always beautiful) Latin
Created attachment 139350 [details]
compare latin and cyrillic
The bug is definitely in freetype and, maybe, downstream as well. It is too
bad that fc6 ftview is broken to demonstrate this. but here is a link:
Greek serifs also look bad. Please, 2.2.2 sooner, please!
