Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202925
wrong rendering of Japanese combining characters
Last modified: 2009-02-25 04:43:40 EST
Description of problem:
OS X deals with the (semi-)voiced consonant using the combining (semi-)voiced
sound mark(U+3099 and U+309A) in Japanese instead of already combined characters.
So it may be likely to see such documents on even Linux Desktop so that users
may wants to exchange the files between both environments.
When it appears in text, Pango can deal with it as one character for editing.
but obviously it's too larger and it looks like two characters are there then.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open a sample file on gedit say
looks like a screenshot
should be rendered similarly with the combined character
