Description Alessandro Ceschini 2011-11-05 13:42:38 EDT
Description of problem:
U+0472/U+0473 CYRILLIC LETTER FITA look like U+04E8/U+04E9 CYRILLIC LETTER BARRED O. It should rather look like what it is in Times New Roman.
Please tell me if you need a pdf or a png showing the correct glyphs.

liberation sans & serif font showing characters

looks like your requested shapes are available in Liberation serif fonts.
Comment 5 Alessandro Ceschini 2011-12-23 05:54:28 EST
Hi Pravin

OK for Liberation Serif but not for Liberation Sans because the straight bar creates an awkward homoglyph with U+04E8/U+04E9 CYRILLIC LETTER BARRED O.

Comment 6 Pravin Satpute 2011-12-23 06:07:06 EST
Hi Alessandro,

  Sans style does not allow us width variations in glyph. In Serif we have that flexibility.
  Can you suggest some alternative design. i.e. we can keep width same across glyph but some more outline variation
Comment 7 Alessandro Ceschini 2011-12-23 06:22:58 EST
Hi Pravin

You mean you can't have wavy lines on Sans? All right, but could you used a broken bar? That would still be acceptable, it's also used on Serif fonts, by the way, see Unicode specimen http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0400.pdf

If you want you can adopt that glyph in Liberation Serif too, for consistency reasons.

Comment 8 Pravin Satpute 2011-12-23 06:28:11 EST
Yes, this look as per Sans style.
Thanks a lot :)

Next month i will make upstream release with these changes.
Comment 9 Pravin Satpute 2012-01-27 04:56:08 EST
These shapes were not presented in Liberation font. Now added these shapes in Sans and SansNarrow.
Upstream commit in done, so will be available with next release
