Description Behdad Esfahbod 2006-11-27 15:22:23 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #217413 +++

I've updated my Firefox+Pango patch to fix a bunch of problems, including one
that boxes are printed instead of zero-width chars.  The latest version of patch
is attached upstream here:


It replaces the current firefox-pango-printing patch.

I may attach another version upstream with minor positioning fixes, but for now,
the one available there is ready to go.
