Dejavu 2.7 has made it into unstable and things are happening on the font side. I just created a new set of screenshots in ; everything is pretty much the best we can do atm, apart from Arabic / Farsi (see #374720)It would be interesting to have some feedback from native speakers; I'd be particularly interested to know how is Vietnamese displayed using Dejavu (we don't use freefont anylonger to display it) and how non-latin languageslook like. I noticed that using experimental g-i images based on latest libraries, everything looks more consistent, that's why I don't thinkit's the right time to spend time on fixing fonts file: I think I'll givea go at font hacking once new libraries will be available. regards, Davide http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/gtk-frontend/screenshots/ 20060621_dejavu2.7/
In Vietnamese, it's just readable at that size, but it's not very good. I have to guess some of the diacritics from the context, because they blend into each other, there's just a blob instead of two distinct diacritics. The a-grave is definitely weird, almost separates the a from the previous character: the grave should be centred above the vowel.
I'm downloading the package, and will send you a detailed critique. I hope that will be useful. :)
