OK I think LO get the right alignment for them. I also made a comparison between LODev 5.3 and Firefox in bug 103850, I think Firefox also performanced correct.

I know what’s happened. When I use the same font size for Latin texts, I get the proper text alignments. But when I use Cardo font for Latin, the problem appearing again. See attachment 129064 [details]
