Improved math symbols

Along with reviewing and making corrections to the numerals in Cantarell Regular, I also looked over a small set of symbols used for mathematics. Some of them—such as the # and *—were heavier than the rest of the design and stood out as bolder. Others—like the %, ‰, ° and ^—were too light.

See related bug 703260.


And while I didn’t find the time to tackle this during the internship, I have raised a new bug with a short list of missing mathematical symbols as well.

  1. Thanks, a good font is really important. All those details matter.

    I downloaded master and %’s zeroes are still too light. Was your patch committed correctly?
