Internet Explorer 11 breaks kerning

    Internet Explorer 11 breaks kerning


    Letter-spacing, or "kerning", is botched in IE 11 so that reading text on webpages becomes a nightmare.

    A "nightmare"? Really? I don't know, a nightmare would be zombies eating my face off. Improper kerning doesn't even enter into "minor annoyance".

    In any, perhaps you can include a screen capture that illustrates the problem. Simply stating something doesn't help anyone.

    It's because I already solved the problem myself. If you are experiencing this same problem, try verifying your IE11 security settings (internet options | security tab | local intranet | websites button; make sure it's set to "automatically detect" if you don't have a local intranet ).

    Thank you for your reply.

    Background info; we had problems with a legacy web app (running in document mode 5) with improper letter spacing when zooming > 100%; also 'solved' by downgrading to IE10, everything is normal now
