Description Jatin Nansi 2004-11-05 15:26:20 UTC
Description of problem:
When the same dependant vowel is entered multiple times following a
consonant, there is no visual indication available for the same. As a
result, its very easy to make spelling mistakes. 


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pango-1.6.0-7


How reproducible:
Every time


Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=hi_IN.UTF-8 gedit
2. ctrl+space, F6 (switch on iiimf, use phonetic keyboard layout)
3. Enter following key combinations: kooooo, kOOOOO, kiiii, kIIII
   kuuu, kUUU, keeee, kEEEE
  

Actual results:
Even if the vowel sign is repeated over and over again, the display
shows just one vowel sign. 


Expected results:
Only one dependant vowel should be attached to the preceding
consonant. Repeated vowel signs should be displayed independently of
the consonant as a blank dotted circle with the vowel sign. 


Additional info:
the 'k' key corresponds to a vowel, the english vowel keys correspond
to hindi dependant vowels in the phonetic keyboard layout.
The same problem also exists in Gujarati (gu_IN.UTF-8). 
Tested on RHEL4B2-20041027.0 using the lohit fonts.

this is also existing for Punjabi(pa_IN). This is very serious problem, when u r
using 
on GTK engine, user is totaly unaware about number of characters to be print,
only able to find this if he check that document with some other rendering engine!

I wrote a patch to fix this bug, and multiple dependant vowel signs (indic) can
display as more, not as one.
The patch was committed in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=330407.
