Just a blind guess. Some Adobe fonts use kerning groups (a set of
characters with equal kerning on left/right), while most fonts, in
particular all the Polish fonts/LM use just normal kerning (kerning
defined for each pair of characters). I suspect that only kerning of
group of characters might be broken.

how exactly should the test code look like? to reproduce it one needs the adobe 
fonts.
Here are links to my testing of the adobe opticals:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2082519/Typescript_Test.pdf
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2082519/Typescript_Test.log

Probably this does not help much but shows that the problem is not only with 
minion pro.

best regards
Bernhard

i reverted a change and not works ok, the problem is that we have to use 
a depricated (bit unreliable) lua function and i'd changes the code; 
however this is also unreliable ... a future version of luatex will 
circumvent this

[NTG-context] Kerning messed up for Minion Pro in ConTeXt 2010.06.09

2010-06-09 Thread Michael Murphy

Hi all,

it looks like the kerning has gone weird for Minion Pro in the latest 
ConTeXt (this is the only font I could find with the problem, all others 
looked fine). I've attached a PDF to show the effect.
