[ml_IN][libreoffice] perfer Meera over AnjaliOldLipi for default document font
Last modified: 2011-10-03 10:58:42 EDT
Description of problem:
In Fedora 15 Release version, the default font for oowriter, oocalc, is appearing as "AnjaliOldLipi" which is wrong. It should appear with "Meera" Font instead, for Malayalam Locale (ml_IN).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora-15 with Malayalam language
2. Open oowriter or oocalc
3. Observe the Default Font appearing.
The default font is showing "AnjaliOldLipi".
It should appear with "Meera" font by default.
AnjaliOldLipi was the selection based on:
"Meera - almost good as AnjaliOldLipi, but totally missing 0D7A, 0D7B,
0D7C, 0D7D, 0D7E"
So, is there a better justification to sort Meera before AnjaliOldLipi for Malayalam as the default document font for Malayalam ? Or is the above convincing for AnjaliOldLipi.
Pravin and Ani
Can you please justify it and reply? As per the fc-match The default font for malayalam Desktop is meera.

libreoffice-core-188.8.131.52-7.fc15 has already changed the default Malayalam font to AnjaliOldLipi from Meera. Am forwarding the bug to community for further discussions.
I can't personally judge which is the better default. Upstream I accepted the argument that AnjaliOldLipi was better than Meera because it had 0D7A, 0D7B, 0D7C, 0D7D, 0D7E.
Feel free to reopen this if you think that was a bad decision or if there's a alternative consensus about the best font for ml and I'll fix it upstream as well.
