Description of problem:
Look at the last row in the table.
This is a Mozilla and Galeon bug. Konqueror renders the text
"(front and shift are ignored)" correctly, rather than showing
something that looks like a weird smear of soot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Surf to http://catb.org/esr/jargon/html/S/space-cadet-keyboard.html
2. Use your eyes.
Expected Results: The text "(front and shift are ignored)".
This is actually a fontconfig/xft bug that I think might have been fixed
recently. (That's a bitmap font, and I remember some problem related to that.)
Owen, Mike, do you guys remember?
a bug that was apparently fixed than reappeared. Though I can't
reproduce the problem -- "(front and shift are ignored)" appear
in a bitmap font, which is weird and probably a mozilla bug,
but they aren't garbaged.
Bliz) Not familiar with the problem.
You can close this bug. It has gone away in FC2.
Not sure what was going on here at this point, closing.
