[Bug 1543989] Re: U+2007 FIGURE SPACE and U+2008 PUNCTUATION SPACE too wide
** Project changed: ubuntu-font-family => fonts-ubuntu (Ubuntu)

U+2007 FIGURE SPACE and U+2008 PUNCTUATION SPACE too wide
Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:
Unicode contains the two whitespace characters U+2007 FIGURE SPACE and
U+2008 PUNCTUATION SPACE that should be equal in width to a digit and
a punctuation symbol, respectively.
In the Ubuntu Font, these are slightly too wide, such that tables
using them for alignment will be misaligned.
I am using Ubuntu 14.04, but the problem persists after installing ttf-ubuntu-font-family_0.83-0ubuntu1.
I can reproduce the problem with LibreOffice, Firefox, and Chromium (test cases attached).
The test cases also use Droid Sans to show the expected behavior.
