Not Only Is This Font Neat As Hell...

It also burdens my poor CPU less compared to other “web” fonts like Verdana or Georgia.  I can tell it by the smoothness of scrolling.

*hugs UnBatang (serif) and UnDotum (sans-serif)*

P.S. GNOME/KDE/other FreeType client only.  Notably not for Windows—the “ClearType” Windows subpixel renderer can't handle the fonts.

P.P.S. Sample screenshot:

pssst.... Firefox is at 1.0.7 :X

Shoot me.  I'm a Debian novice. XD

*bang*

No honestly, that's not half bad.
Did you set it on your journal style options?
Or just force it as the default font in Firefox?
Also, I have Batang, but not UnBatang.
No Dotums present :(.

Batang is probably from the Baekmuk font package, which has been around longer and is the default Korean font in most GNOME 2 distributions.  There are two different Batang/Dotum font releases; one is Baekmuk and the other is UnFonts.  The ones in UnFonts are what I'm talking about.

Check your packages; at least Debian has one (named ttf-unfonts IINM).

# emerge -pv unfonts-extra unfonts

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild N ] media-fonts/unfonts-extra-1.0.1 +X 6,011 kB
[ebuild N ] media-fonts/unfonts-1.0 +X 10,718 kB

Total size of downloads: 16,729 kB

Merged (that was quick).
I'll check it when I get home. I think things are going to be looking a little sexier too :D.

Yup, it's in my LJ style.  That's actually one of the primary reason I modded Generator into “Dynamo”—Dynamo can specify multiple fonts.

In my style, UnBatang is the primary font, and the backup fonts are Georgia, Batang and serif (in that order); so on Windows the journal is shown with Georgia and Batang (the Windows Batang BTW, from the foundry called “Hanyang”.
