I've uploaded screenshots of the display with different fonts on both
MacVim and gvim.
All fonts are displayed at size 20. My comments on the screenshots:
gvim-bitsreamB.png: Crisp, nice, spread, and easy on the eyes.
macvim-dejavuB.png: The more diacritics (harakaat) I put the more the
line number is pushed off screen and the letters start having gaps.
macvim-dejavuB2.png: Only just starting to type.
macvim-dejavuB3.png: Only one letter and it's ""haraka" and the line
number is already pushed.
The rest for you:
gvim-courierNR.png: Not bad. But you note the gaps due to "harakaat".
gvim-courierNB.png: Nice, crisp, but not as easy on the eyes as
bitstream/dejavu. Bitstream/dejavu spreading/cursivness is very neat.
gvim-courier10B.png: Gaps are very clear.
So, my conclusion from all the above is that the defect of display is
not only MacVim specific. It also relates to the fonts used in a less
intrusive manner. While some fonts do produce gaps as worst case
scenario on gvim, almost all fonts don't work properly with diacritics/
harakaat on MacVim. Also the fact that none monospaced fonts don't
display properly in MacVim nor gvim.
