Not knowing much about typesetting, I do not know what kerning and
ligature is.  My letters tend to run together, or be spaced out too far.
It occurs consistently;  certain words are mangled the same every time. 
The condition appears to be independant of font;  I have tried using
three different fonts, and get identical results;  the words are mangled
exactly the same way in Helvetica as they are in Courier.

It's not easy having a good time...even smiling makes my face ache.
