Since 1.7.10, there are some changes come to the Minecraft GUI scale ratio calculation, which makes many small text unable to read and distinguish in Unicode font mode. If you plays the game by setting the option "Force Unicode Font" to "ON" or under a Unicode-only language environment like Chinese or Japanese, you will meet this annoying problem.
For example, this is what you can see though a thaumometer in Unicode font mode:
Look at the popup messages in the lower right corner. Too bad, right? I have reported these issues to many mod authors to convince them to enlarge the small text in their mod. Many authors have updated their mods, but there are still some mods I need to fix by myself.

- Launch Minecraft, with the mods you want to get supported and the Unicode Font Fixer mod installed.

- Send me the fml-client-latest.log in .minecraft\logs\ directory, or just post those lines with "unicodefontfixer.RenderingDebugger" in the log file.

In addition to this example, the Unicode Font Fixer mod will fix every broken text in the mods listed above.
