Well, in FreeSerif Regular, this circle should also formed by rounded dot (but looks smaller than FreeSerif Bold), which is more suitable for serif typeface.

Yes, it's nice, isn't it?
Different font faces, different styles!

Why do you mark this as "incorrect"?

Hi Steve,

I found the dotted circle looks sightly different in FreeSerif. In FreeSerif Regular, this circle looks formed by squared dot, as FreeSans designed; but in FreeSerif Bold, this circle is formed by rounded dot.
