The problem can be solved by checking the "Always use my fonts" checkbox in the fonts dialog, so it may be some issue with the font name the page requests. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit the above webpage on Firefox/Linux on Fedora Core 2. 2. Notice fonts as vertical bars. Actual Results: Fonts render incorrectly as vertical bars. Expected Results: Text should be rendered correctly. If per-chance the requested font is not on the system, the default font of that type should be used instead. Note screenshot attached.
Created attachment 166015 [details] Screenshot of bad fonts Here is the screenshot demonstrating the bug.
Sounds like either a bug in the font or a bug in XFT...
