[newspaper] Milliyet distorsions

Hello, I'd appreciate if you'd share your understanding of the distorsions shown in the attached sample, how come that some of the glyphs seem to drop outline points, it doesn't show in all the headlines, tho.

It could be an issue with Postscript to TrueType conversion. For example in curves where only one end has a BCP funny things can happen. Also, when inflection points are not explicit (common in the "s") you're asking for trouble.

Thanks, Hrant, why/where do you think a Postscript to TrueType conversion may occur in a newspaper process ?

The RIP.
Or, I guess more commonly, it could be a TT to PS conversion?
