The kerning of usernames isn't that good for me. It's almost keming. As a result, I almost misspelt the username, which meant the user wouldn't have received a reply.

Is this a problem for most users, or do I just need to get glasses?

If we're choosing a specific font because it needs to support non-romaji characters, that's fine.

  • The Furigana engine does make Japanese+fullwidth Latin text display in a Japanese font (details), but halfwidth Latin etc in usernames (which is what is used in this case) should be displayed using the body font which is AFAIK the same for all beta sites: "Helvetica Neue",Arial,sans-serif.

    Yeah, that's the same font used on all beta sites (cf. CS, Biology, Worldbuilding). It kerns badly for me, too.
