After upgrading to Feisty, all Hebrew fonts from the Sans family (DejaVu, Nimbus, Bitstream Vera) look squeezed: lower and wider than they should have been, as if someone had sat on them.
This happens in Gnome menus and widgets and even inside OpenOffice documents, and makes the Sans family quite unusable for Hebrew readers.
FreeSans still shows Hebrew correctly, albeit somewhat smeared, but its Latin letters are not on par with DejaVu, Nimbus and Bitstream Sans.
This problem is reported by two users, <A href="http://www.tapuz.co.il/tapuzforum/main/Viewmsg.asp?forum=236&msgid=97191960">here</A> and <A href="http://www.whatsup.co.il/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=37949">here</A>here (both discussions are in Hebrew).
P.S. I use fglrx on ati radeon x1600, with a resolution of 1680x1050. Is there a possibility that the fault is caused by the fact I use a wide resolution? The Hebrew Sans fonts look like now like they were forced into a wide screen.
