Math font adventures
I’ve been obsessing over why integral subscript and superscripts look ugly in #SILE and not in LuaTeX, although I respect the OpenType standard.
Then I found a paragraph in LuaTeX’s manual that basically says “Yeah their placement should use the font kerning parameters, but not all fonts implement that so we just tweak the positioning parameters in a non-standard way to make integrals look nice.”
