I did not appreciate the problem with Firefox pre3.0 Basically, Gecko does not seem to get the size of letters right when a sentence mixes italic/bold and ordinary charcters. Words appear overlapped. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open webpage above 2.Look for a word in italic or bold 3. Actual Results: The spacing between ordinary and italic/bold characters is not properly rendered. Words overlap, making it difficult to read the text.

You're running a version of Camino that's 8 months old; does the problem persist in Camino 1.1a2 (http://beta.caminobrowser.org)? Are you running 10.4?
dupe of bug 288047 ? Juan, could you verify that 1/ you have the following fonts: 'Georgia' and 'Times New Roman' installed in both ~/Library/Fonts and /Library/Fonts ? 2/ if you remove or disable the ones in ~/Library/Fonts, then restart the browser, does the problem still happen? You can use FontBook.app to do all this.
I have removed all of the Windows fonts (Arial, etc) and the offendig pages (which indeed included Google searches) now render properly with Mac OS X fonts. The problem, though, persits on beta: the size of characters is not properly guessed by Camino.
Definitely a dupe then.
