Description Nicholas Shanks 2008-04-09 07:42:22 PDT
1) Download and install http://web.nickshanks.com/downloads/fonts/Kedage.dfont
2) Restart Safari
3) Go to a Kannada site such as http://sampada.net/article/8005

Previous behaviour:
All glyphs in the Kannada script would render with the Kedage font.

Current behaviour:
Some glyphs do, and some don't. Haven't done a reduction.

I am now on a different machine, and Safari 3.1.2 & r36901 are displaying all glyphs fine. Not sure if bug was fixed or not.

I tried downloading the font, but web.nickshanks.com didn't respond. Would it be possible for you to attach the font here?

yeah, i was logged in to my G5 via VNC, installing 10.5.5 earlier this week, and clicked reboot, and it never came back online. I have no idea why and won't find out until i go back to england at the end of november. can't access via ssh, gopher, http or vnc :-(

I cannot reproduce this with Safari 4.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.5.8.
