Description Deron Meranda 2012-08-26 03:40:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Among all the different fonts within the Liberation family the naming of glyphs and mappings to Unicode codepoints should be consistent.

For example, the glyph named "fi" maps to U+FB01 in LiberationMono-Regular.sfd, but to U+F001 in LiberationSans-Italic.sfd.

Also, for the reverse mappings, the Unicode codepoint U+00B7 maps to glyph "middot.001" in LiberationMono-BoldItalic.sfd, but to a glyph named "middot" in LiberationSans-Regular.sfd and to "uni00B7" in LiberationSerif-Bold.sfd.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Expected results:
All the fonts in the font family should use consistent glyph names and unicode codepoints (when a particular character is in the font).

Additional info:
The attachment lists all these inconsistencies. I've excluded cases where a particular glyph/character is not included in one font.

Note that many of these are simply cases where:
* A glyph is not named (e.g., of the form "uniXXXX")
* A glyph has no unicode assignment (value 1)

Also in a few cases there are glyphs that have multiple unicode codepoint assignments — see Bug #851790
