[as_IN] Unencoded characters mapped in Lohit Assamese font
Last modified: 2012-07-11 01:36:12 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.
Empty glyphs with positive advance width (i.e. practically equal to space character) are displayed.
There should be no mapping in the font so that only the .notdef glyph should be displayed.
Resolved and pushed into master branch. Thanks for notifying this.
