CYRILLIC LETTER FITA

Description Alessandro Ceschini 2011-11-05 10:46:19 UTC
Description of problem: Hi U+0472/U+0473 CYRILLIC LETTER FITA look like U+04E8/U+04E9 CYRILLIC LETTER BARRED O. It should rather look like what it is in Times New Roman. Please tell me if you need a pdf or a png showing the correct glyphs. Regards

Please give an example of how it should look like, because U+0427 and 04728 aren't present in Times New Roman (you are probably seeing a substituted font). If you know something about it, do you have documentation that says that the current shape is not acceptable?
Comment 2 Alessandro Ceschini 2011-11-06 12:21:23 UTC
Hi Ben Laenen No, it's Times New Roman, but the 5.1 version bundled with Vista/7, not the (free) one available for download at the Software Center. I'll make a pdf and then upload it. By the way, the reason why the current shape is unacceptable is simple: because it's homoglyphic with U+04E8/U+04E9 CYRILLIC LETTER BARRED O. And since BARRED O must stay BARRED - otherwise it wouldn't be barred :) - then FITA has got to have a wavy bar. Regards

Created attachment 53243 [details] CYRILLIC LETTER FITA This is my preferred shape.

Created attachment 53244 [details] Unicode Cyrillic Range But since the one above is maybe too "sophisticated" for a mainstream font like DejaVu, you can opt for the shape suggested by Unicode, which is rather than a way bar, a broken bar.

Thanks for the screenshot. For the Unicode code chart you don't need to upload the PDF here. A link is enough. I guess it should be the same glyph as Cyrillic Oe or Barred o U+04E8 U+04E9. There's also another glyph for the capital: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cyrillic_letter_Fita.png
