Thanks for checking. I just ran the same data with Arial Unicode MS (see attached). There
appears to be some issues on matra positioning. I'll look into this.

  Hi Glen,

  Language / ligatures are perfect in the PDF document. This is very encouraging, especially
because the words in the document are quite complex.

  I know that many users of my application use Arial Unicode MS on Windows and so that would
be a good font family to test.

  I'm thrilled to see it take shape! I'll be happy to review other documents you generate
and once the code is stable, would be happy to test it out.

  Regards,

  Dilip

  Hi Dilip, 


  Attached is a test FO file and resulting PDF I just generated with Gujarati support enabled.
Could you take a quick look to verify. I used an excerpt from [1] as a sample.


  I currently have only the Shruti (regular and bold) fonts from Windows 7 to test against.
Do you have other Gujarati OpenType (1.5 or later) fonts you would like me to verify?
