Patch adding FC_HINT_STYLE key (2.12 KB, patch)

Details | Splinter Review

Description Owen Taylor 2003-09-23 12:32:41 UTC
The tradeoff between 

 - Faithfullness to original letter shapes
 - Degree of contrast

Is a matter of user preference, also dependent on font shapes,
resolution, and quality of hinting available. It should be
possible to change through fontconfig.

Patch adding FC_HINT_STYLE key

This is what we've been using in Red Hat for the last year or so...
(If you do something different, I'd appreciate it if you use a 
different name for the key, since that will make migration problems
