Wrong glyph variant for Bulgarian Cyrillic small letter b (б, U+0431)
Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:
The current Ubuntu font family uses the Serbian/Macedonian glyph
variant for the Cyrillic small letter b (б, U+0431) when text in
Bulgarian is rendered. The affected fonts have a specific substitution
table that replaces the default correct glyph with the wrong language
specific one. This is related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-
font-family/+bug/708578. As suggested in one of the last comments
there, Bulgarian should use the exact same glyphs as Russian in all
styles, including italic. No other font family uses the
Serbian/Macedonian glyphs for Bulgarian, including pre-computer
Example generated with:
pango-view -o /tmp/bulgarian-b.pdf --font 'Ubuntu 24' --width=250 --markup --text "Expected glyphs: <span lang='ru'><big>б <i>б</i></big></span> Actual glyphs: <span lang='bg'><big>б <i>б</i></big></span>"
