Liberation SANS Italic Serbian Glyphs and Ubuntu Italic Serbian Glyphs


I mean SANS font like this one ( Ubuntu, attached picture , FontForge )

Ubuntu Light Italic  ( SANS type font, no serifs ), perfect, full OpenType
features. Both Russian and Serbian Glyphs. 
The same look is with Microsoft compatible OpenType fonts ( both Serif and Sans
I do not understand what NATIVELY mean against SLANTED, but Windows and Ubuntu
Linux  ( or any other Linux distribution I use, CentOS, Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora,
Scientific Linux) recognize font "Liberation Sans Italic" as Italic font or
Ubuntu Italic as Italic fonts.

TeX users mostly use name Slanted for "Italic". If You ( using XeTeX ) have
some problem about recognizing this fonts, all application I am using are ok to
me ( Italic or Slanted ).

BEST example for using Italic ( or Slanted ) is to Login to some Ubuntu
machine( with Serbian localization, not English or Italian ) and Display
manager, programs, Update Manager, applications, all of them work WITH ITALIC
SERBIAN GLYPHS without any additional tweak.
It is not possible to achieve the same with Liberation SANS Italic ( Liberation
SANS Narrow Italic ) without this b,g,d,p,t Serbian glyphs.

You can test SYSTEM font ( put this new Liberation SANS with Serbian Glyphs)
under Ubuntu Linux ( with Serbian localization ) and look for difference.
Default Ubuntu font properties show font Sans ( hard coded to DejaVu font,
alias Vera ), change to this new LiberationSans with Serbian Glyphs and look at

All Microsoft new SANS OpenType fonts also have b,g,d,p,t Serbian Glyphs (
similar to Ubuntu font design ).

Best Regards.
