Messed-up Kerning on Windows

See original GitHub issue

No matter which stylesheet or font I’m using, the PDF shows up with completely messed up kerning. Some letters are too far apart, some are too close together, and that regularly happens within a single word. The letter sequences closer together seem to be the same ones throughout the document. Explicitly setting letter-spacing: 0 has no effect.

This should be resolved with the 2.0.0 Puppeteer based release but please check the release notes before upgrading!

I’ve been working on the Puppeteer migration and it’s not far off being finished. I can confirm that this fixes the kerning issues 🎉, it shouldn’t be long until this is finished. You can track the progress on PR #42
