           Summary: 'optimiseLegibility' text rendering issue OSX
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh Intel
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.6
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Text
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: vernnobile at gmail.com

When using 'text-rendering:optimiseLegibility' with OSX(10.6.8), Safari (5.1) and Chrome (14.0) to render truetype fonts, the letter spacing of text is rendered inferior than with 'text-rendering:optimiseLegibility' toggled off. Presumably WebCore is imposing it's own hinting(?) onto the OSX text rendering?  The result imo is inferior text letter spacing.
