Subject Re: CFF fonts render bolder in Apache 4.9 over Adobe 4.1a
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2013 17:03:34 GMT
Font embed library is not and will not be donated. When using Apache flex you have to install
the adobe library otherwise the font won't embed and I think it will appear thicker.

We have a style sheet that does, in part,

        @font-face {
            src: url("assets/trebuchet.ttf");
            fontFamily: "Trebuchet";
            embedAsCFF: true;
            fontFamily: Trebuchet;
            fontLookup: embeddedCFF;
            font-size: 12px;
            color: #333333;

in order to get the look we wanted in in earlier Flex versions.
When compiling with the latest Apache release, all our fonts come our bolder - see http://oi48.tinypic.com/t8an9c.jpg
which has 4.9 on top, 4.1 on the bottom.

Is this to be expected ? I thought the font rendering was all donated from Adobe now so should
match up ?
