Default Typography (use of fonts) in Ubuntu's interface

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

For the past few months, Canonical designers have been working on
recommendations to improve the way Ubuntu uses fonts.

These recommendations cover things like the default font size, a
family of sizes for different purposes, use of bold and italics,
hinting of the Ubuntu font, spacing in controls, line length and
layout of common window types, and changes to default components in
Ubuntu.

Implementing these recommendations would involve code in many
components, including GTK, the default themes, Unity, the file
manager, and other default applications.

We will also provide guidelines for application developers on how to
use fonts to fit in with Ubuntu typographically.

At UDS we would like to present a draft of these recommendations and
guidelines, and invite feedback both from Ubuntu developers and
application developers.
