Graphics, User Interfaces The Engineering 7 weblog has an item about the improvements made in the ClearType font rendering technology which has been included in Windows since Windows XP. While I won't go too deeply into that post, I did figure it was a good opportunity to talk about font antialiasing in general; which type do you prefer?

This must have been fixed years ago. Either that or the font kerning data itself is not quite right. My Deja Vu fonts are kerned just right.


Ehhh... nope.

That's ubuntu 9.04, with all the latest updates installed, showing that it still be spacin g - though I'm particularly fond of how it handles the 'ac' combination on FreeSans... and that 'ci' combination on Deja Vu Sans is cute too... and if it's screwing up Bitstream Vera Sans, then it's very likely the problem is likely NOT with the fonts, but with the renderer.
