# What font/style is this?

Consider the following text samples produced with LaTeX:

• sample 1
• sample 2

Notice the difference in height of letters in sample 2.

Sample 1 is obtained with default font as

{\bf Keywords:} magnetic spectrometers, charged particle tracking, particle optics


My question is how to produce font style in sample 2. Is the purpose of this style to increase readability of text?

• I'd never want to reproduce such a bad typesetting. :) – egreg Feb 24 '12 at 22:31
• This could be due to a rounding error of the renderer software. – Andrey Vihrov Feb 24 '12 at 22:34
• Andrey: it actually appears to be so. Sample 2 is from screen shot from Okular viewer, while sample 1 is from Evince viewer. When the same document is viewed with Adobe Reader the effect is gone. But the strange thing is, that I have already seen this effect on a printed document. And rounding error is usually small (sure it can accumulate in badly written algorithms), but this effect is easily seen by the eye. – liberias Feb 24 '12 at 22:43
• The second sample looks related to the Cthulhu worshipping man font question. – Stefan Kottwitz Feb 24 '12 at 22:44
• Is the second sample produced with vector or raster font? Vector format is preferrable, see this question for how to switch. – Andrey Vihrov Feb 24 '12 at 23:00
