VTE does not handle indic composite characters and ligatures
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:46 EST
Description of problem:
Composites and ligatures in indic text are not rendered correctly in vte.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://bbc.co.uk/hindi/index.html
2. cat index.html
3. gedit index.html, compare hindi text with text catted above
gedit renders hindi correctly, but vte does not.
vte renders hindi correctly.
We are aware that incorporating pango support into vte will result in
a performance hit. So if its presently not possible to do the indic
text processing for vte, can we have the default english monospace
font in the indic locales? As currently the display of even the
english text in vte in indic locales is not proper since the indic
font does not have monospaced glyphs.
To test, you may use the Gargi.ttf font available in this rpm:
Nalin, I hope you don't mind if I cc' you in here.
We can tracking this through feature #147025. Closing this out.
