pango + zwj


According to Unicode rules, for forming the Malayalam Chillaksharams(soft consonants) one must press corresponding consonant+ Virama(0d4d)& ZWJ(200D).

But, Yet it is not clear to me that whether pango handles ZWJ in the Indic fonts. Whether actually ZWJ is also taken care in pango. I have Unicode font which, in windows, renders Mal. Chillaksharams(Pure consonants) when the corresponding Consonat, virama, ZWJ is entered. But in Linux(RH9.0) it is not working. They are displayed separately.

I think the ZWJ is not handled in pango for indic fonts. What should be done, inorder to take the ZWJ also in to consideration for forming the the required combinations.

    Looking forward for your reply.
