Oh yeah, I can see the effect in FreeSerif, but after my observe, yi should also adjust the kerning in FreeSans Bold.

OK, I just implemented kerning for the letter yi -- the only one that definitely needs it.

I know nothing about Armenian kerning; FreeSerif has no Armenian kerning tables (the hook on the letter actually extends left of the glyph bounds, which is against our policy -- we prefer to use kerning for this.)

Any general information about kerning in Armenian would be appreciated!

Hi Steve,

In the Armenian word այբուբեն, the letter յ seems have entry for kerning, which seems work in FreeSerif Italic, but in FreeSerif Bold this letter seems no kerning with the proceding letter.
