I’m using a web font (@font-face) taken from google’s web font gallery. The text should be vertically centered as I have an equal padding on top and bottom. BUT it doesn’t look properly on linux/mac. I’ve tested it using both Chrome and Firefox: http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/7114/fontissue.jpg
as you can see, Ubuntu does not include some of the pixels on top as part of the text and therefore, when adding 5px of padding to top and bottom, it doesn’t look centered.
Have you seen this before? It happens for most of the custom fonts. This is very annoying and has made me go back to regular fonts a couple of times.
I’d like to know, why this happens; and if there’s any solution for it.
