-------------------------------------

I found a good [blog 
post|https://blog.idrsolutions.com/2011/10/truetype-hinting-big-screens-for-small-details/]
 on CJK fonts which use hints to position brush strokes.

> Font glyphs with overlapping paths may be rendered in correctly, especially 
> when the font size is small.
> Sadly, the Traditional Chinese edition of Windows bundled fonts 細明體&新細明體 
> (MingLiU & PMingLiU) and 標楷體 (DFKai-SB) all suffer from this problem.
> See attached sample.pdf and the rendered sample_rendered.tif.
