Current and suggested appearance of Lohit Devanagari SA
Description of problem:
The glyph for SA in Lohit Devanagari currently does not have the horizontal bar
within the SA connected with the left part of the glyph. While on superficial
reading and especially at low point sizes this is not a problem, it would be
preferable to have the horizontal bar fully connected, especially when viewed
at high point sizes.
This would greatly improve legibility and recognizability as SA (and not as RA
+ something), especially for the future development of Devanagari OCRs to parse
documents printed using Lohit Devanagari.
The glyphs for half-SA and the ligated SRA should also be likewise corrected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Lohit Devanagari font
2. Type स स्व स्र etc by selecting that font.
3. Increase the point size to a large number like 48.
The horizontal bar within the SA glyph, half-SA glyph and the SRA ligature is
not connected to the left side of the glyph. This does not look good at large
point sizes. It would also be difficult for Devanagari OCRs to parse this as
the current appearance of स is somewhat similar to रा.
The SA glyph, half-SA glyph, SRA ligature (and any other current or future
derivatives) should have the horizontal bar connected to the left side of the
