Description of problem:
With mozilla build ID 2002020221,
Italic looks horrible (as does <em>stuff</em>)
Not ALL italic looks horrible, but on the given URL
for example, the text "this is why a reference always must be initialized"
has the word 'always' stretched out and deformed with aweful
spacing between the characters.
In general this seems to happen for <em>, <i>, <address> etc
(see also the Copyright notice at the bottom of that page).
The font specified by the document is italic helvetica, mozilla resolve it to
"-alias-helvetica-medium-i-normal--*-iso8859-1", which is an alias of font
"-misc-kochi gothic-medium-i-normal--*-iso8859-1". But this font really looks
horrible. It is a CJK font with wide space, and it is not italic at all. If
there is any reason that this font must be kept, at least don't give it a alias
name like helvetica.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install mozilla trunk build
2.load the specified URL
Actual Results: italic font looks horrible.
Expected Results: A real italic font should be used.
This bug should be fixed in 1.0-7 or higher.
You need to upgrade ttfonts-ja to the latest version.
