Description Matt Wilson 2003-02-11 06:12:03 UTC
Description of problem:
"Chinese(Simplified) (<span lang="zh_CN.GB18030">ç®ä½ä¸­æ</span>)" shows ç®ä½ä¸­
æ in non-anti-aliased font, instead of picking the right font for zh_CN

Expected results:
Use the right font for zh_CN

Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2003-02-11 06:54:22 UTC
better example: 

Japanese (<span lang="ja_JP.UTF-8">æ¥æ¬èª</span>)

"æ¥æ¬" are bitmap "èª" is anti-aliased

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2003-02-11 13:41:19 UTC
What if you do it without the encodings? span="zh_CN" and span="ja"?
Pango doesn't know anything about encodings, it doesn't care anything
about encodings, it doesn't support encodings in language tags.

(Wow, this is the first time I've seen bugzilla not mangle i18n text
in a bug report...)

Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-02-11 16:02:15 UTC
Pretty obvious bug, I'll build a package with a fix in a few minutes.

(Basically, the LANG attribute is misclassified as not affecting
the font.)

Comment 4 Owen Taylor 2003-02-11 16:05:37 UTC
Hmm, no, that wasn't it... need to look further.

Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2003-02-11 19:21:44 UTC
Fixed in 1.2.1-2.
