I've commited these fonts to CVS, and patched
rockbox_default. Sorry I wasn't clear earlier. What I
meant was that rockbox_default was similar enough not to
need a new font name, not that we weren't going to include
the fix.

For your interest I put a graphical diff at following site:

on (red pixel show the modified, green the original pixels)

The link should work now.

With the exception of rockbox_default, we would prefer to
add these fonts as new fonts, since in many cases the style
of the font changes. Please could you pick new names for
the altered fonts and re-submit the patch? Also we need
your full name for the credits.

I created new font names for the modified fonts:
namil__8 <= rockfont-8
nedore_8 <= atadore
nedore_9 <= atadore (but linespacing=9px)
nimbus12 <= chicago12 (but linespacing=12px)
nimbus14 <= xtal-14

Still I think the lowercase 'r' positioning in rockbox_default
should be changed. But maybe I'm to sensitive on the font
appearance after a few years of font technology sw-
developing :-)
