10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

The Japanese "、" comma should sit on the baseline, but on the referenced page it's roughly in the middle of the line's height

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View page
2. Observe text "三人よれば、文殊の智恵" near top
3. Observe floating comma there
Actual Results:  
Comma on baseline

Expected Results:  
floating comma

I don't think I've seen this happen before, but I'm not sure what would have changed.

Either this should be filed against Firefox (with a much newer build), or we need to know what version of Camino you are using.

This WFM in both 1.6b4 and trunk.

Adam, can you address Stuart's concerns in comment 1? Did you mean to report this against Firefox? If so, you need to upgrade Firefox to the latest version first.

If you meant to report it against Camino, you need to let us know exactly what version of Camino exhibits the problem, and whether the latest version of Camino (which is 1.6) exhibits the problem.

If it does, it would help to know specifically what font preferences you have set.

The stylesheet specifies {font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Georgia, serif;} for that element.

This _may_ eventually have happened on those old builds, where the baseline of Japanese fonts (Hiragino) was a little off. Although I've never seen it happen. And that baseline issue was fixes in Gecko 1.8.0, iirc.

I took a trip into history (fun !) and checked the URI with Mozilla 1.7.13, Mozilla 1.6, Mozilla 1.4 and Netscape 7.02. None of them displayed anything wrong with that line of Japanese text, in their default configuration.

WFM ?
Closing WFM based on comments 1 and 4.
