Opera Doesn't Like autohinting in WOFF fonts

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala » Mon Apr 29, 2013 9:03 am

My Test Page would not render correctly in Opera 11.64 or 12.15, although it was fine in Firefox or SRWare Chrome Iron.

However, when I disable the hinting, the font renders as expected.

It looks to be working fine here in opera 12.15:

Maybe it's related to Opera running on Windows XP?

It is now, because I have removed the hinting.

I have now uploaded the hinted version of Odana.woff again.

Clear your cache and try again, The Kabala text is OK, but he Odana text in the heading is not.

I am now indeed seeing that it is not working, however I don't have a clue as to why. Both FireFox and the official W3C WOFF validator indicate the font is compliant to the W3C specification. Must be a bug/unsupported feature in Opera then.
