      Description

      The DIN font seems to have an issue with Kerning.
      Anything which is not a letter (e.g. '+', '-', '.') seems to create another whitespace.

      "Qt Quick 1.0" looks like "QtQuick 1 . 0"
      "C++" like "C + +"
      "some-dash" like "some - dash"

      The issue is valid for native text rendering and distance fields.
      I also tested our texedit example.

      Wordpad renders the font just fine.

      The font is available here:
      http://corpapps.parker.com/corpapps/corpcomm/parkerid/fonts/din.zip

      I tried DINOT-Light.otf, DINOT-Black.otf and DINOT-Regular.otf
