Subject: www.debian.org: home banner kerning wonky
Date: Sun, 06 Feb 2011 22:48:56 -0500
Package: www.debian.org
Severity: minor

The new website looks great!

Just a little thing here:

The kerning of the text "the universal operating system" on the
(new and otherwise spiffy looking) banner on the home page is very
inconsistent. Enough that it was distracting. Particularly, there
appears to be a full three pixel columns of space between the "O"
and "P" in "operating", where as most letter pairs have one or two.

Also the "S" and "A" in "universal" appear to be touching, while
most other letter pairs don't.

I hope this is a quick and easy fix.

Thank you,    - Jason

Valessio, is it possible to fix that, possibly pulling the text away
from the image (that would allow this heading text to be translated,
since we offer the home page in 36 languages)?

Regards

David
