Comment 4 Leon Ho 2004-12-05 23:58:18 EST
I can reproduce on comment #3 for hi_IN.UTF-8. LE does not handle
glyphs rendering so it is not a LE problem. The reason seems that
because ttfonts-hi does not have roman glyphs and httx cannot able to
fallback to different fonts for the glyphs. Please confirm.
Comment 5 Lawrence Lim 2004-12-06 00:05:04 EST
Sounds like a httx problem then. Reassigning bug to component owner.
