Description of problem:
I'm using mozilla on a SGI 1600SW LCD display and there are two (so far)
rendering problems with the font rendering.
"m" looks like "rn" becasue there is more whitespace (an extra pixel column?)
between the first column of the m, and the middle one compared to the middle and
the right one. Thus, "computer" reads like "cornputer"
double quotes look like fat single ticks
See the attached screenshot
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on subpixel smoothing
2. Launch mozilla
3. Look at text with m or "
Actual Results: Badly rendered font
Expected Results: Well rendered font

Make sure that you have the most recent mozilla out of rawhide and reset all
your fonts to [System Default].
The font rendering looks fine now with mozilla 1.2.1-22. Keep up the great work
on RH linux!
OK. Marking as RAWHIDE based on reporter comments. (Thanks!)
