Description Khaled Hosny 2013-07-04 21:29:50 UTC
For purposes of text extraction from PDF files, glyphs should be named in accordance with Adobe Glyph Naming convention (http://www.adobe.com/devnet/opentype/archives/glyph.html). Most glyphs in Lohit fonts follow this convention properly, but some do not. I did not do an extensive review, but I noticed several occurances of glyph names like:


Which is wrong, since step 1 of the mapping algorithm in the above link will drop the part of glyph name after the first occurence of a peroid, so only u0919_u094D will remain which is assume is not what is wanted here. A proper name would then be:


or something like that (the part after the peroid is completely ignored, so it can be anything).
