FreeSerif U+02BF bug

stinney
The right half circle in FreeSerif.ttf from freefont-20090104 is too high
(between 1600 and 1800 instead of 600 and 800) and therefore does not display.
I checked the rest of the fonts, and it is only a problem in this one.

Hi, Steve,

I don't see this.

I downloaded freefont-ttf-20090104.tar.gz from
http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/freefont/, unpacked it,
and opened FreeSerif.ttf using a FontForge of 29 April '08.

Both the left and right half circles (U+02BE and U+02BF) lie between
500 and 720.
A search of the font for points above 1600 yielded nothing.

What are we doing differently?

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I was viewing this with FontLab Studio; it
must be a bug in the refer handling there, I think.  When I view it with
FontForge the character appears as expected, and when I select the installed
font and enter the character in TextEdit it also appears as expected.

It's only in FontLab Studio that the character is not visible in the font
overview grid.

Steve,

Well, keep on it.  Send FontLab a bug report, too.  You never know, it
still could be triggered by some funny FreeFont problem.

If you see any other problems (with FreeFont) don't hesitate to write!

Cheers!
