Description hrhlzhlqermt 2011-02-16 17:13:00 PST
Using Hoefler Text, WebKit fails to change the color of the entirety of the letterform. The portions outside the box (which is simply the background of the a tag) do not change color when the link is hovered.

Mac OS X 10.6.5 Build 10H574
Safari 5.0.3 (6533.19.4)
True Type Hoefler Text; 6.1d7e1; 2009-09-21 (came with OS X)

Thank you!

Duplicate of bug 6274?

Yes. As a workaround, you may specify "text-rendering: optimizelegibility;" This has a performance impact, though.

Apologies for the duplicate; I was missing the keyword "repaint" during my search.
Thank you for your prompt response.
