Subject: ugly greek letter m (U+03BC) in liberation sans regular
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 2008 20:54:11 +0200

Package: ttf-liberation
Version: 1.04.92-1
Severity: normal

After updating to version 1.04.92-1 the character μ (U+03BC, GREEK
SMALL LETTER MU) appears ugly
when using Liberation Sans.

When using Liberation Sans Bold, Italic and all the variants of
Liberation Serif and Mono, μ appears OK.

You can see the problem in GNOME Character Map, when using Liberation
Sans as GNOME's default
application font and in Firefox.

I am attaching a small html to demonstrate the problem:

test case

I am attaching testcase as attachment, but I am not sure what the reporter means -- the letter looks to me roughly same in any Liberation font I have (liberation-fonts-1.04.90-1.fc10.noarch).

Switching to ASSIGNED so that developers have responsibility to do whatever they want to do with it.

Thank you.
