Package: ttf-mgopen
Version: 1.1-3
Severity: normal

The text rendering of the font MgOpen Canonica looks terrible at small
sizes (really, at any size below 20). I suspect this is due to broken

An example of some characters at size 8:

Gnome font settings: 

Resolution: 106dpi
Smoothing: greyscale
Hinting: full
Rendering: best shapes

With hinting turned off, it becomes blurry, but the shapes make more

If this is only intended to be a print font, it would probably be a good
idea to make it so it isn't shown on the screen using some defoma rules.

To give a reference for what this looks like in body text, please see
the following: 

For whatever reason (I suspect torment), the author of the blog decided
to specify this font in particular in their CSS. It'd be nice if even
maliciously-intended CSS writers couldn't hurt users' eyes in this way.
