sarif fonts are hard to read in Thunderbird and Firefox
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:37 EST
Description of problem:
RHEL 5 Beta 2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch firefox.
2. Navigate to e.g. http://www.heise.de/newsticker
3. Take a look at the page being rendered.
Page is hard to read. Charactersequences like e.g. al are glued together.
Page is easy to read as it used to be with RHEL 4.

Part of a screen shot illustrating the problem
core X fonts are pretty irrelevant here, since firefox uses pango for rendering.
Reassigning to freetype.
-- uses pango.. reassigning to freetype...
-- huh? why not pango?
This bug should be closed by now. firefox/pango updates had fixed it like more
than a month ago
Reporter, could you please confirm comment 4?
Yes, this seems to be fixed in RHEL 5 final.
