Description of problem:
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.
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?
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.

CYRILLIC LETTER FITA
This is my preferred shape.

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:

Sorry I meant "should not be the same".
