Re: [ft] Problems with Courier New

the double line spacing is caused by a bug of Xorg.
It computes the line spacing by adding the maximum height
of a font to the maximum depth instead of using the
font-supplied ascender and descender values. Since
CourierNew contains quite large symbols (like these ⌠ and
⌡ -- integral top and bottom = Unicode 0x2320 and 0x2321)
this results in an inordinate line spacing when setting
“normal” text.

A bug report with a proposed patch can be found at
(you’d have to recompile xorg though).

Kind regards
