Thanks for your quick response! Let me reply inline:

I really only added scripts as a last-ditch attempt, in the hope that
Claudius Teodorescu’s email was the answer for which I’d been looking.
Most of my attempts to make this work did not include them.

I’ll try setting it to “dflt” now, just to see if it helps, but
otherwise I’ll leave them out.

Sorry, I should have been more precise. I’m using Noto Sans as my
_typeface_, I’m using the various fonts for each of these scripts. For
example I’m using NotoNaskhArabic-{Regular,Bold}.ttf for Arabic, and
NotoSansDevanagari-{Regular,Bold}.ttf for Devanagari.

Interesting. It was working well enough for my test content in the PDF
produced in 2015. Perhaps after this is all released our resident
language expert & I can look into pushing that forward a bit.
