In this image you can see the font preview from font installer in system settings, showing Verdana bold with Verdana bold italic below it. You can clearly see on the third line the "N", "V" and "W" are too bold, and the middle part of the "N" is too wide in Verdana bold italic on line 6.
** Attachment added: "verdana font preview" http://librarian.launchpad.net/7400620/verdana_font_preview.png ** Description changed: The middle part of the capital "N" in Verdana bold (and bold italic) is rendered too wide for me on Kubuntu Feisty at some font sizes. I don't remember this problem being present on Kubuntu Dapper. The whole of - capitals "V" and "W" also appear to be too wide. The only customisation - to my font setup I've done is changing my .fonts.conf in my home - directory, and the problem still exists when I remove that. + capitals "V" and "W" also appear to be too wide at some font sizes.
