Description Daniel Wagner 2011-06-20 19:53:53 PDT
I am investigating the following bug:


Some scripts have different glyphs for letters that are connected to their neighbors. These connections are rendered correctly when using a single color, but words with several colors have disconnected letters. A small test-case for which the correct and incorrect renderings are visually quite distinct includes the following HTML:

<span style="color:#808080;">ه</span>ه<span style="color:#808080;">ه</span>

Shortly, I'll included a screenshot of this snippet being rendered by Webkit incorrectly, and a rendering of the same partially-colored text rendered in LibreOffice. (Firefox also correctly renders this snippet.)
