           Summary: Consider ignoring Greek/Cyrillic
                    full-width/fixed-width glyphs in CJK fonts
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Layout and Rendering
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jshin at chromium.org

Some CJK fonts (especially on Windows) have the fixed-width (exactly the same width as CJK glyphs)  glyphs for Greek, Cyrillic and non-Latin ASCII characters. When such a CJK font is at the top of the font stack, Greek and Cyrillic are rendered with a very ugly fixed width glyphs in that CJK font even though there are much better Greek/Cyrillic glyphs available in other fonts (e.g. Arial, Times New Roman, Helvetica, Times, etc). 

This can happen if a user set his global font setting to use a CJK font for standard, serif, sans-serif family and a web site just specifies a CSS generic family (e.g. 'serif' or 'sans-serif') as Wikipedia does. 

This can also happen when a web site specifies such a CJK font at the top of a font stack (or before any Latin/Greek/Cyrillic font).
