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

This patch is to use the pango markup in GtkCellRendererText for nativeName.

the language list rendering comparison
the left column is the one without the pango markup, i.e. the original, the middle column is with the pango markup. the right column is just a guideline to see what the language a row is for.
You can see the difference for Japanese at least.
Wow, that is really subtle and I definitely never would have caught it. Thanks a lot for the patch. I will be pushing it shortly.
This bug looks to have been fixed for many anaconda builds now but missed being closed. If you find you are still experiencing it with Fedora 18 Beta (RC1) or later, please re-open the bug.
(This looks correct to me in Beta RC1.)
