Offset diacritical marks on post titles; Ryu theme

    We’ve starting writing short stories, and posting them on our wordpress blog. We’re writing them in Romanian, so we naturally use our specific diacritical marks (ș, ț, ă, â, î).
    Since yesterday however, any ț or ș is horribly offset if present in a post title, as can be seen on the latest post on http://scamatori.wordpress.com/
    Last night we only set up our menu, so I fail to see what I may have done to cause such a strange font behaviour.
    I have tried emptying my cache, using a different browser, using a different pc, resetting the theme, but to no avail. It seems like the font kerning itself is wonky.

    The blog I need help with is scamatori.wordpress.com.

    Hi there,

    I checked the font that’s used for your theme’s post titles, and it looks like the problem is coming from the font itself. You can see that by looking at the ț or ș in the font’s character set here:

    http://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Playfair+Display

    You may want to contact the creator of that font (Claus Eggers Sørensen) to let him know about the issue. I’m also reporting this to our theme developers to see if there is something we can do on our end about it.

    Thanks for reporting this!
