Description Santhosh Thottingal 2011-12-12 07:29:59 UTC
Description of problem:

Lohit Devanagari covers the Devanagari unicode code set and uses same glyphs for the languages which use Devanagari script. But it seems Marathi language needs changes in some of the glyphs. 

Attached a PDF document with the required changes. The document is written by Sushant S. Devlekar
based on Maharashtra gov. order http://www.maharashtra.gov.in/GR/Marathi/2009/11/06/2009110613044700

Comment 1 Pravin Satpute 2011-12-12 10:15:06 UTC
Found following point after comparing draft quickly with Lohit Devanagari:

ल  श  श्न श्च  श्व  

These characters required localized shape for Lohit

Comment 2 Pravin Satpute 2012-02-12 14:23:36 UTC
Only localized shape for ल  श are not available now.
Committed in upstream, will be available with next release.
