A query

Why do Mozillish browsers render DejaVu Serif Condensed fonts so badly, at least on Linux? In Opera they are rendered stupendously (unlike many other fonts).

Maybe Opera is using the TrueType instruction engine in freetype2 and Mozillish browsers aren’t? Or maybe it's the other way around.

BTW I need to figure out how to get Flock (and other Mozillish browsers) to let me type Esperanto letters in a composing box. In Opera it’s no problem. Flock et al. let me type a circumflex "a" (â) but what about a circumflex "c"? No go.
