Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4

Specificly the font face "Terminal" does not display properly when it is of a very small font size(1).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load a page with small text (font size 1) in the font "Terminal"
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Text is unreadable.

Expected Results:  
Text is readable.

I have not tried other font faces, but I suspect there are others that this happens with.

1) What does it mean for terminal not to display properly at "size 1" (do you mean 1pt?) font?
2) What does the myspace page have to do with this bug report?

other than that making terminal fonts down to about 1pt font has the expected result here.

Yes font size 1pt, I'm sorry I wasn't clear. 

The myspace page has the font as a quick example, though in that case it is bolded. 

It may just be the bolded text, though I did a quick test without bolding before sending in the report and it still was unreadable for me.
