I just applied to a Job on Careers, and while reviewing the pdf Resume that was sent to them I noticed some bad rendering or perhaps Kerning going on:

SOCareers Html Site:


PDF Resume:

Oh the huge manatees

You can see the problem inbetween "CSS" and "as", and again between "CoffeeScript" and "and". It might have something to do with the bold/emphasis tags too.

I am running on OSX 10.8 and viewing in Preview.

    Thanks for letting us know! Looks like there actually is a blank between "CoffeeScript" and "and", it's just extremely slim. We'll have to jazz up our PDF rendering engine a bit to give 'em the space they deserve... – Max Jan 18 '13 at 17:03
  • No problem, I'm glad to help. – Alex Moore Jan 18 '13 at 17:07

Should look better now, please try again!
