Glyph '1' not the same width as other numerals
Last modified: 2012-03-06 15:29:24 EST
The number 1 in Sans (not mono) seems slightly narrower than the other numerals, which makes it inconsistent with Arial, for example. And doesn't look nice either.
I did comparison of number 1 with 4 and both character has same width.
Let me know steps to reproduce (or compare it with which character) so i can better understand and make necessary corrections.
This is peculiar. It doesn't show in Google Chrome, but it does show in Firefox and Konqueror, although all of them seem to use Slight hinting.
I'll attach a screen shot, maybe that helps.

Combined screen shot of the erroneous rendering in certain apps
Understood the problem. kerning defined for 1-1 pair, it reducing its width.
Do you remember any particular usecase for this kerning pair? if not i think we should remove it to make font consistent with Arial as mentioned in this bug.
Same problem with Liberation Serif and Narrow as well.
