Nimbus No9 L has poor differentiation of greek 'nu' and lowercase 'vee'

Bug #257565 reported by John Pye on 2008-08-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gsfonts (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This font is unsuitable for general mathematical text, because the 'nu' and the 'vee' symbols are very similar. Especially in the field of fluid mechanics, it is important that these symbols be visual distinguishable, and this is already clearly the case, for example, with the 'lmodern' fonts used with LaTeX
