# calligra font - apostrophe position

As you can see in the picture, the apostrophe is placed in a WRONG position, when I use calligra font.

Is there a workaround, or a very similar font which doesn't have such problem?

\documentclass{letter}
\usepackage[left=2.0in,top=2.0in,bottom=0.0in,papersize={5.96in,9.00in},landscape,twoside=false]{geometry}
\setlength\parskip{0pt}
\pagestyle{empty}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{color}

\usepackage{calligra}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

{\Huge Voil\{a}, c'est pas beau.}

\ \\

{\Huge \calligra Voil\{a}, c'est pas beau.}

\end{document}

• i think you may have a problem with any such font. they're usually very stylized. apostrophes are more often positioned appropriately for cap height or ascender height than for the x-height, and thus are going to be flying rather high above lowercase letters when, as particularly with this font, there is a huge difference between the x-height and the cap height. – barbara beeton Jan 15 '16 at 20:58

That's ... odd.

Seems to be an error in the font, you can work around it as below but it should probably be reported to the maintainer.

(I didn't copy your \\ useful, it was too painful:-)
