When the font is specified as "sans-serif", at certain font sizes, an abnormaly large space appears between numbers and the Hebew text following them. The amount of space seems to depend on the length of the following text. Selecting the line leaves this extra space unselected. Specifying the sans-serif font by name (e.g. Helvetica) eliminates the problem. This is probably a Mac-specific issue (I don't remember seeing it on other platforms), so the correct component might be "GFX: Mac".

Created attachment 167751 [details] testcase The two lines should look the same (when the default sans-serif font is Helvetica). The first line uses "font: sans-serif" and exhibits the problem.
This is almost certainly just a special case of bug 294376 - in which I've done some more research and given a better testcase. I'm closing this one as a duplicate, at least until proven otherwise. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 294376 ***
