Awful generic selection for zh in Firefox
Status in fonts-arphic-ukai package in Ubuntu:
Status in fonts-arphic-uming package in Ubuntu:
Status in language-selector package in Ubuntu:
arphic-ukai/wily/revision/6, UMing and UKai are set as generics for
fonts. However, this set of generics is completely intolerable --
setting UKai as a generic is like setting Zapfino and/or Comic Sans as
a system-wise generic, while UMing as a normal (just a bit thin) serif
sounds a bit better. This yields terrible results on non-Chinese
systems with non-Chinese lang-attributed websites, like Twitter, on
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS after installing Chinese language support which
includes the two arphic fonts mentioned in this report.
This problem is similar to
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20911, a long-standing
system-global fontconfig non-latin fallback problem. See also bug
#1560548 where these generic settings are considered as 'redundant'
and proposed for deletion. I have mentioned a third-person report
about such selection in #1560548 previously, but I have just
reproduced this bug by myself by installing zh-cn support by mistake.
