Mac PPC Jan14 Seamonkey build PBook G3, System 8.5 1. Launch Seamonkey on PPC. 2. Go to: default home page loaded or a page like http://www.cnn.com and look at all fonts on page, in particular their edges. • Fonts are not rendering properly; jagged edges of the characters at what appears to be all sizes. Simon <sfraser> seems to think the issue is in Atsui (?) code for Intl. Assigned to Simon for now for input then Simon please reassign as needed. Win32 Jan 14 build displays properly; fonts' edges on page are smooth.. Linux build is too unstable to check against.
Try the 1/15 build - so smooth! (because ATSUI was turned off). If ATSUI breaks the system's font anti-aliasing, there is not much we can do. This bug should fester until ATSUI goes back in.
glynn, please give results against latest build.
Well fonts are smoother in Jan21 as Simon said :-) but leaving bug open to "fester" and assigned until real fix is developed
This bug needs to be revisited one ATSUI goes back in. I'm off PP work at the end of this week, so reassigning to Pierre for fostering until ATSUI comes back.
Removed the [PP] tag because we don't need to get that fixed before the end of the month and reassigning to beard who's watching over ATSUI issues.
Summary: [PP] Mac - Fonts rendered with jagged edges → Mac - Fonts rendered with jagged edges
Setting all current Open/Normal to M4.
This is not a CSS bug (component set as 'Style System'). Reassigning qa contact to email@example.com. Component needs reassignment.
macdev folk say set component to layout for now
claudius, this still happen with latest Mac build on Apprunner? I would Release Note for Dogfood.
As far as my eyes can tell, there does not seem to be a problem with font smooting on the Mac as of tues 3/9 (99068) build. I do not however, know the ATSUI status I'm assuming/hoping it's turned on? I also believe frank tang <ftang> is holding onto some font/Atsui bugs so I've included him on the cc list.
teruko, how does this look for international?
Moving to M5.

Text is not completely visible in this page, might be a font metrics problem. Are we doing font substitutions that may make this look bad? Take a look at: http://www.cnn.com/NATURE/9905/14/glowing.mice.reut/
Reassigning to Don.
Summary: [PP]Mac - Fonts rendered with jagged edges → [FONT MAC]Mac - Fonts rendered with jagged edges
Is this still a problem ? I currently only use ATSUI in a very very limited way so 99% time you won't hit ATSUI code unless there are some character we cannot render by using MacRoman (such as 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 characters)
QA to petersen, cc'ing sfraser
QA Contact: claudius → petersen
I'm not seeing any noticeable font irregularities. Mozilla M15 2000031908, Mac OS 9 (which should handle ATSUI code w/o any difference in quality, however).
The Fonts seem to be rendering smoothly, so I will close this bug.
