Adobe fonts updated for cross-platform consistency
October 18, 2012
Every font in the Adobe Type catalog on Typekit has now been updated so that its vertical metrics are consistent across browsers. For designers, this means that page layouts will match more closely on all platforms. Just republish your kits to receive the updated files.
In addition, every weight and style of each family has the same vertical metrics values, so that (for instance) emboldening or italicizing a phrase in a paragraph won’t interfere with line spacing. And finally, the fonts also circumvent an unusual spacing problem in IE9 related to Typo metrics (one of three sets of vertical metrics in a font file, each of which regulates glyph clipping and line spacing in different ways on different platforms). After talking with customers about this issue, we found a reliable fix; if you wrote to our support team about IE9 spacing, thanks!
