Adobe's Palatino has one very annoying feature:

All digits have equal width, but there is a kerning
between two adjacent letters "1" defined.  As a result,
tables do sometimes not align.

Fortunately this seemly fairly rare. 

Helvetica Narrow is another font family with "KPX one one" kerning.

The Penumbra family has  a whole bunch of kern pairs
between various digits and between digits and punctuation.

What are you doing with kerning with respect to "space" :-)?
