[liberation-fonts] Alignment mismatch of dot accents.
Last modified: 2008-03-31 23:45:56 EDT
For the Liberation fonts, in characters with dot accents, the dots are not
aligned with the dot on the letter i. For some faces, the misalignment is more
pronounced, particularly in the Liberation Sans regular font.
The problem is shown in the screenshots for dotted c (Unicode 10B), dotted e
(117), dotted g (121), and dotted z (17c).

Wow! This issue was considered worthy of attention and a fix in Liberation
fonts. The dots are all other the place in DejaVu Serif and Sans. DajaVu
maintainers are aware but are not making a "decision", aka procrastinating.
