With a large font size you can still see a zigzag on the small capital ze with descender, but it is fine at normal sizes.

It’s ever so slightly better in revision 3348 but still misaligned. The capital and small capital forms of these characters are still inconsistent.

The new attached image shows the capital and small capital ze and es with descenders with more highlighting. I hope this will clarify what I am talking about.

The capital letters are good. The small capital letters are bad.

The capital letters have green circles circling how the connection between the letter and the descender should look. The small capital letters have red circles circling how the connection currently wrongly looks.

The capital letters have smooth green lines next to them to emphasize that the connection should be smooth. The small capital letters have zigzag red lines next to them to emphasize that the connection should not be jagged, though it currently is.

The descenders still don’t align well. The small capital letters’ descenders do not attach to their bodies the same as in the capital letters. The attached image shows the capital and small capital ze and es with descenders, with the discrepancies highlighted.

I just mis-read your report.
Fix in SVN.

I beat you to the next one: the hook on the Es in Mono is reversed!

The attached image shows two U+0499 glyphs. The left is normal and the right is small caps.

The normal glyph’s descender connects smoothly to the letter’s base, whereas the left side of the connection between the small caps letter and its descender has a zigzag.

I said it looks too large because it is a capital-sized descender on a lowercase-sized letter. I don’t have any standard to back up this opinion.

All this goes for U+04AB too.

Hi David,

In what sense are they misshapen, with regard to what standard are thy too large?

As to alignment, to my eye, they are both aligned pretty well to the round openings in the letter. What are you referring to?

In FreeSerif (all styles), the descenders of small capital U+0499 CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER ZE WITH DESCENDER and U+04AB CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER ES WITH DESCENDER are too large and don’t perfectly align with the curved bottoms of the letters.
