Re: Re: issue with Devanagari rendering

Title: Samsung Enterprise Portal mySingle

Hello Werner, Behdad,


Probably I am getting things wrong here.

I infer that you are suggesting that the fault lies in the font file itself.


I ran my code with different font files available in Windows, like Kokila, Managal and Arial Unicode MS, all of which contain the Unicode U+25CC.
The output is still wrong.


Don't you think that this behaviour has anything to do with harfbuzz?


Thanks and regards,

Parth Kanungo

The maintainer is in fact CC'ed on this message already.  Recent versions have
fixed a lot, but the version stuck on most Linux distros is beyond repair in
the shaper.

In general, I've found that both GNU freefonts and GNU unifont have a
quantity-over-quality mindset that is quite hurtful IMO.
