Strange lines (hairs?) coming off caption fonts.

I've seen others comment on this, but I have to add my 2 cents. I'm finding that many fonts (that is, usable fonts) common to subtitling are displaying weird, annoying lines that bleed out from the font. It seems M and W are the worst. Basically, it makes the entire caption option useless. My only option is to subtitle as graphics and pray my client doesn't ask for an SRT file. I REALLY hope this obvious bug is worked out ASAP. (Of course, I'd like to mention how the entire captioning section needs to be reworked, but one thing at a time.)

See my post here for a quick overview (that you may have already seen):

https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/captions-egde-leak-problem/m-p/10730136#M236552

 

Even though it seems simple, for the captioning tool, fonts are not handled the same way.

 

Links to the scripts I refer to is in my post here:

Andreas Kiel has a new tool for Mac, with a link in that thread:

For me, the bigger problem is the quality hit that captions take for burn in. See this thread, but note that some of the links no longer work:

The user-voice report was updated and is now:

Note there are 2 posts there by staff, that give some background and a workaround. I don't believe that I was ever 100% happy with the workaround, but it has been several versions back that I tested it.
