[ml_IN] Digit (unicode) having latin glyphs
Last modified: 2013-07-02 20:38:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Malayalm Fonts having Latin digit glyphs (0,1,2) instead of malayalam glyphs
(check at http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0D00.pdf)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Following unicode points:
as malayalam digit are not used anywhere now, but as these are part of unicode,
so need to fix
As Aalam said Malayalam numbers are not used anywhere, other than in the Holy
Bible. 99% of the people do not know Malayalam numerals. Even the
government(where our product will be more used)documents are written using the
Latin numerals (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9). Hence,when malayalam inscript is activated
on the keyboard, we need to have these Latin numerals only. But if we are so
particular that we need to include the malayalam numerals as the unicode exist,
we can but since it is not at all going to be used from the user side,when the
keyboard is used to write in Malayalam , Latin numerals must appear when the
keys 1-0 are pressed.
Not a very proirity if it is not used anymore.
Mayank, can you confirm if keymapping are using keycode from U+0030 to U+0039 on
key maps 0-9?
Leon, they appear as numbers.
I have lohit malayalam fonts installed.
I want to confirm that these are 0d66 to 0d6f, not English (0030/0039).
confusion due to font only, where 0d66/0d6f contains Latin Glyph instead of

Answer to NEEDINFO
Adding Leon to CC list.
Leon, who is owning this bug after dsantani's exit?
If keyboard is mapped to English numerals, then it does not make much difference
if the malayalam numerals are included in the font or the latin numerals are
placed in the place of malayalam numerals. Changing the priority to low.
