User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0

Steps to reproduce:

Please access to the following urls:

Actual results:

In these PDFs each parenthesis, which is not Ascii charatcter, is too left or too right positioned, and I see unnatural space (too broad or too narrow) between it and  the following character. 


Expected results:

Each parenthesis(brackets) should be more beautifully positioned.

This is mainly because those PDFs assume the texts will be rendered with KozMin while they don't embed the font. It's really hard to fix up on our side. At least Chrome PDF Viewer "matches" our behavior (except the first URL).
