OK, and now Opera renders my page in Times New Roman because that's what I picked for Arabic?

Now this is getting ridiculous.

Plus, Arabic is one language where I'm not prepared to fall back to "Auto", at least not while "Auto" is FreeSerif and FreeSerif doesn't do proper Arabic shaping for Persian letters; it's just not worth it for me.

So, off with his head. Buh-bye, FreeSerif.

Various edits, in which I try to restore Opera to sanity. )

Ah, I think I know why Opera is messing up fonts now -- it seems to be using FreeSerif for Arabic, for example (I was wondering just now why Opera couldn't shape a Person cheh), which doesn't seem quite up to scratch for the task. So, let's pick a different font for Arabic and Hebrew rather than going with the default.

Edit: And after I did that, all the Latin text changed shape, too.

Fortunately, I knew that I had been able to fix this before, and I must have written an entry about it -- and Google found this entry. And indeed, setting the Hangul font to "Automatic" fixed that problem.

Opera, you're bizarre.

Addendum, 2009-02-13: Greek Extended, this time.

Addendum, 2009-02-14: Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms. Really, Opera, what's going to be next? Do I have to change everything to "Default"?

Addendum 2, 2009-02-14: Runic? Hebrew? This is getting more and more bizarre.

Addendum, 2009-02-15: and now you're taking my Japanese sans-serif fonts away from me, too? I prefer "gothic" fonts to Ming-type ones. Grrr. This may just be the last straw. Don't make me do this.

Fonts in Opera

Ever since... I don't know when (two weeks or so?), my Opera browser does funny things with font linking, and uses different fonts for certain things than it used to.

I'm not sure what prompted the change, but it's a little annoying. Especially that the Japanese font is no longer Gothic, since I liked the look of it; especially the sans-serif-ness of it but also the non-anti-aliassing.

OK, this Korean font on my friends page is getting to be annoying. And the Korean isn't even on the first two pages any more! What's up with the weird font choice, Opera? It used to work just fine!

Edit: Switching the Hangul font to "Automatic" turned my friends page into Georgia again. WTF? Since "Automatic" for Hangul is suppopsedly Batang -- a serif font which I don't really want to Korean. (I like sans-serif for CJK.)
