I'm using the xorg x-servers on Ubuntu, but I have seen similar problems
with Debian, so I think this isn't something distribution-specific, but

often get oversized "O"s - their height is bigger than the other
characters in the same line. Here are some examples:

Firefox. If I understand the CSS correctly, this is the Verdana Truetype

I am really irritated by this, as these oversized "O"s really stand out
from the rest of the page's text.

Anything I can do about it?

Best regards,
