Glyph for 0D3A Malayalam Letter TTTA in Lohit Malayalam needs to be corrected
Last modified: 2012-05-26 03:43:46 EDT
Description of problem:
With the release of Lohit Malayalam 2.5.1, the characters for Unicode 6.0 have been added. In Malayalam 0D3A Malayalam Letter TTTA is new to Unicode 6.0.
In the Unicode 6.0 the character was given a glyph similar to Tamil TTI டி which was wrong. Therefore this glyph has been corrected in Unicode 6.1 to look like Grantha TTA (Tamil ட with a small tick mark below) as seen in the Unicode 6.1 Malayalam codechart: http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0D00.pdf
Therefore please correct the Malayalam TTTA glyph to reflect the latest Unicode codechart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
By installing the latest Lohit Malayalam 2.5.1 font.
It shows the wrong glyph for Malayalam TTTA which was wrongly given in Unicode 6.0 chart.
It should show the correct glyph for Malayalam TTTA as correctly given in Unicode 6.1 chart.
fixed in upstream, latest ttf http://pravins.fedorapeople.org/Lohit-Malayalam.ttf
The tick on the lower line should be somewhat more centered. Please find a revised version of the TTF at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=567649
Thanks for taking care of this. Quick work! :-)
