An instructive post. People to really know who they want to reach and why or
else, they’ll have no way to know what they’re trying to achieve. People need
to hear this and have it drilled in their brains..
Thanks for sharing this great article.

Chrome/Chromium use "Thin" as default font weight
Status in fonts-noto-cjk package in Ubuntu:
Status in fonts-noto-cjk source package in Xenial:
Status in fonts-noto-cjk package in Debian:
Chromium and Google Chrome use "Thin" as the default Noto Sans CJK
font weight, which makes some Chinese and Japanese web pages difficult
to read, and thus gives a bad user experience.
The fonts-noto-cjk version in the PPA
installs 7 weight specific font files instead of a single "super"
file. This works around the Chromium/Chrome issue.
Note: It has been fixed in yakkety via autosync, so "backporting"
yakkety (as an SRU) instead of uploading from the PPA is an option.
To reproduce the bug:
* Install Chromium or Google Chrome.
* Go to <http://www.gamer.com.tw> and notice the very thin characters.
* Install fonts-noto-cjk from the PPA and notice the difference.
This is about another font packaging form, without any change in glyph
coverage, so the the regression risk should be low.
The package seems to only "thin" variant of the font, which makes it
very unreadable in applications such as Chrome (when it has to fall
back on Chinese fonts on a mostly-English page). I had to remove the
package and then manually download the font from Google website and
install it to make the regular weight available
Release: 16.04 LTS
Package Version: 1.004+repack1-1
Expected: All weights of the noto cjk font to be installed
Happened: Only the "thin" weight of the font seems to be installed
