Re: pango + zwj


First, RH9 is too old to test Pango, please update to latest
version, or preferrably, CVS HEAD branch.

Second, look for it on bugzilla.

Third, it should be handled in the Indic module.

Fourth, seems like latest Pango does something for ZWJ in Indic
module, most probably what you want:

[behdad home pango]$ grep ZWJ modules/indic/*
modules/indic/indic-ot.c:                    chars[baseLimit] == C_SIGN_ZWJ) {
modules/indic/indic-ot-class-tables.c:    if (ch == C_SIGN_ZWJ) {
modules/indic/indic-ot.h:  C_SIGN_ZWJ      = 0x200D,
