Description Jatin Nansi 2004-08-05 02:54:43 UTC
Description of problem:
Composites and ligatures in indic text are not rendered correctly in vte. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

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
Actual results:
gedit renders hindi correctly, but vte does not.

Expected results:
vte renders hindi correctly.

Additional info:
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:
