WARNING :: Droid Sans font with autohinter becomes bad, without autohinter looks great, but becomes smallish, cant help
even the smallish is so good, that i am using it on desktop
but cannot be used as a substitution for arial, since 12px (which is very common on websites) becomes small as if tahoma 10px
Noto sans does better in this case, can be used as arial substitution without loss of size
noto sans is slightly fatter than droid sans
Open sans is much fat, and open sans bold looks bad, hence we choose noto sans as the replacement for arial
Download the following fonts
Droid fonts whole sets
Download from google web fonts
open sans all styles
noto sans all styles
noto serif all styles

.fonts.conf
release 6.3.23
Licensed under GNU GPL
================================
LCD optimized 96 dpi
"Sharp'N'Clear" font settings
with emphasis on 'msttcorefonts'
tested on Ubuntu GNU/Linux 5.10
================================

================================
Why was this conceived?
- some font families look better hinted by Byte Code Interpreter (BCI)
while other fonts look better hinted by Auto-Hinter
- hinting type affects italic and bold fonts differently
- antialiasing needs to be adjusted according to font families and sizes
Essentially, there is no one single rule that works for all fonts.
NOTE:
- Verdana @ 8pt doesn't render '2' and '6' right
- Arial shows 'Z' distorted in Firefox 1.5

"The relationship of pixels to points depends on the number of pixels
per inch, which is typically some 'standard' value corresponding to
default screen fonts. For example, MS Windows has two standard sets of
screen fonts initially designed for IBM display systems: 'small' (VGA)
and 'large' (8514/A). 'Small' fonts are 96 pixels per inch, 'large' are
120. Macintosh systems render type at a nominal 72 pixels per inch, i.e.
one pixel = one point. Some display systems using scalable screen fonts
allow fine tuning of pixels per inch to suit user preferences."

FIXME: Verdana renders characters '2' and '6' slightly distorted

EDIT Silver Moon : not replacing verdana with arial.
hey verdana is slightly fatty, how about replacing it with open sans or noto sans
open sans is fattier compared to droid sans
BAH, it looks good
Open Sans is cramped at 11px with autohint = true
'sa' the s and a will stick badly
'50' the 5 and 0 will stick badly
But 12px onwards Open Sans is better than Noto Sans
But the vote goes to noto sans for verdana replaced to maintain beauty at 11px
Another note
noto sans has single stroke small g , open sans has the 2 round style g
noto sans p is thin, open sans p is better looking

Behavioug is similar to droid sans,
WITHOUT AUTOHINTER
1. becomes smallish, like droid sans, very small on desktop ,
2. DESKTOP - HIGHLY PROPORTIONATE, HIGHLY CLEAR
2. WEBPAGES - less clearer - vertical stands become hazy
3. slightly less STRETCHED
WITH AUTOHINTER :
1. very slightly STRETCHED
2. CRYSTAL CLARITY on webpages,
3. lesser proportionate on desktop, CLARITY KIND OF OK OK
3. bold font ugly with hintfull, good with hintslight
Since we are using noto sans as arial replacement, hint it fully with autohinter.
hintslight will compromise clarity
thought of doing this, above 12px autohint = false
below 13px authint = true
but autohint false leads to loss of clarity, but makes width correct
moreover chrome does not obey pixelsize correctly

AUTOHINT = TRUE
1. LESS CLEARER
2. 'n' is cramped
3. 9pt desktop, slightly distorted
4. 12px webpage is normal sized, but not great as noto sans with autohint = true. but better than arial
droid sans with autohinter, becomes more disproportionate on gnome, this is lesser with noto sans
in browser there is not much difference between autohint true/false
true leads to clarity loss

Great stuff, thanks! I forked it to get rid of the many warnings "Having multiple values in isn't supported and may not work as expected" you get with the latest versions of fontconfig, due to this commit.

As I was not sure if the original code was having the intended effect, I used the recommended way to disambiguate the multiple values: split them in multiple <match> elements.

See also this relevant Ubuntu bug report.

Is this warning about multiple values critical and indeed "does not work as expected"? I don't like the idea to multiply the config entries just to get rid of warnings..
