    Project mention: MacType: Better Font Rendering for Windows | | 2021-08-01

    I believe Windows's approach is localisation not globalisation. Many programmes runs properly only in designed locales, not that programmes run well in any locale.

    Chinese/Korean rendered incorrectly on English UI because system hardcoded a font fallback, which put Japanese font first, regardless of how languages are ordered in the Settings. This is largely true for traditional Win32 programmes, like Chrome, Edge, Explorer.exe, etc. However UWP apps using the new UI framework (like Unigram, Intel Command Centre etc) behave correctly if setting Chinese/Korean as secondary language.

    It's different on macOS or iOS however, if you set a system locale order as 1. English, 2. Chinese, then Chinese content will render correctly with correct Chinese system font PingFang.

    Another issue that is also very important is that Chinese (Simplified or Traditional), Korean and Japanese share amount of the same characters but written differently. That means system must render the glyph in correct variant, like in the example of Source Han Sans

  • Dompdf

    Project mention: is there faster way to load images to DOMPDF? | | 2022-02-21

    Project mention: Best VSCode Extensions I use for any project | | 2022-03-16

    This isn't an extension, but it's another great thing I like to do: change my editor's font family. There are two wonderful and functional fonts I like best for this: Fira Code and JetBrains Mono - both free and open source. The best thing about these fonts is that they are monospaced fonts that contain ligatures for combinations of various common programming characters.
