Alright, the thing is, that uh sort of leaves the ‘a’ just sitting there alone with really weird loose kerning? It’s fine? And you’re sure it doesn’t bother you how the ‘S’ sorta merges with one side of the ‘M’ making it into a vertical ligature, but the ‘k’ sorta checkerboards against the other side of the ‘M’? No?
