Numbers rendered at different heights based on word
Status in ubuntu-font-family-sources package in Ubuntu:
Using google-chrome-stable from Google's upstream repositories,
numbers in the Ubuntu font are rendered strangely. When part of a
word, they are rendered full-height (as I would expect) but when
standalone (or part of a string of numbers), they are rendered at
lower-case height. This is particularly noticeable when typing in to a
text box that renders in Ubuntu, because already-typed numbers can
change in height.
To reproduce, visit http://font.ubuntu.com in Google Chrome and type
the string "5". You will see a small 5. If you append "s" to the
string (i.e. "5s") you will see the "5" change in height.
I'm filing this bug against Ubuntu despite it being in an unpackaged
browser because I've tested using exactly the same version of Chrome
in wily and xenial (49.0.2623.75), and the behaviour only exhibits
itself in xenial.
