Description Jonas Nyman 2006-07-02 16:58:14 EDT
Description of problem: As usual Fedora lacks support for many languages. It is
also difficult, if not impossible to install support for eg tibetan, dzongka,
nepali, and other languages not using latin script. Other distributions have
support for these languages, why not Fedora? 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to view a website in tibetan: www.thdl.org
2.try to write tibetan in open office
3.try to install tibetan fonts and input-programs 
Actual results:
It is impossible to view websites, document and so on with eg tibetan writing
It is impossible to install programs that enables support for non-latin-script

Expected results:
It should be possible, and easy, to enable support for many more languages.
