Description Shriramana Sharma 2012-07-10 16:44:06 EDT
Description of problem:

The Lohit Assamese font 2.5.1 contains two empty glyphs at positions 0x79 0x7A mapped to the non-encoded characters 09E4 and 09E5. Apart from PUA it is not appropriate for standards-compliant fonts to map non-encoded characters. Please remove these glyphs and their mappings. 

The Lohit Bengali font does not have these spurious glyphs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Lohit Assamese font in an editor.
2. Enter (using some contrivance) the non-encoded characters 09E4 and 09E5.
Actual results:
Empty glyphs with positive advance width (i.e. practically equal to space character) are displayed.

Expected results:
There should be no mapping in the font so that only the .notdef glyph should be displayed.
