Zoom and fonts
We have, all browsers have a problem with fonts related to zooming. Basically, all zoom implementations suck because of the font system. Let me show you graphically, using CNN.com's home page :
Many things to notice in these screenshots:
- the 3 browsers behave consistently at 100% ; don't laugh, that's a bit of an achievement
- Firefox and Opera change the hyphenation of the first line of title below Gore's photo because of the font size, not adapted to the millipoint to the zoom factor
- MSIE 7 sucks, and deeply sucks. The title is hidden below the photo and the whole thing is completely messed up
So I have one question about the font size problem shown by the reformating of the title : is that a bug or is that caused by the font handling of the system and there's nothing we can do about it ?
