Hi Johannes!

Yeah, you're right, we're not talking on the same thing. What I mean by kerning is correct pixel anti-alialing artifacts, when a letter becomes blurry and you can use a sharpening filter to sharp the edges (correcting the blurry). But none sharpening filter changes the shape or move objects. I actually didn't know it's called kerning too. Thank you for show me that! :-)

By the way, I need to say your work is a actual improvement! I don't know yet if I'm updated to your last proposals, but I'll find it and give you feedback soon.

See you,

Hey Paulo,

Sadly I can't see any image from the imageshack server. Could you add to
wiki? I'm actually curious about your friend's proposal.

I guess that's something InDesign does with OpenType Pro fonts (Minion

And with "sharpening filter" I mean this one or another GIMP plugin to
image's edges (IMO, the best is the Inverse Diffusion of GIMP's GMIC
plugin). They can be used to correct some kerning problems on the final
generated bitmaps.

Ah okay. But are we talking about the same "kerning"? How can a sharpening
filter move letters about?
Maybe I just don't get it, sorry ^^.

To the rest: Can we have a vote on the ligatures somehow? Or are there
further suggestions?
