Mono: Shaded glyph resolution and tilabilty in Ubuntu Mono (U+2591,
Status in Ubuntu Font Family:
Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:
The shaded glyphs in Ubuntu Mono, while way ahead of just about any
other outline font simply by not leaving gaps in gnome-terminal, still
suffers some of the common problems.
First of the level of detail is much higher than the rest of the
glyphs, leading to artefacts at small sizes as well as color shifts
(apparently when subpixel rendering tries to cram in all the detail).
It also makes them look unbalanced next to letters with larger sizes.
The other one is tiling. Aside from the top-bottom of U+2593 all the
glyphs start and end in the same configuration, this creates obvious
seems when they are placed next to each other.
The attached image illustrates each of these.
