I tested this bug. I can find this bug if my system doesn't install hindi fonts.
And I can not find this bug if I install the hindi fonts.

Comment 3 Rahul Bhalerao 2008-02-29 10:38:38 UTC
Yes thats right. This happens due to the font selection method in qt.
First, depending upon the character in process, it determines the script it
belongs to. 
Depending upon the script, it looks for a font that supports the script. If it
find a font supporting the script, then it loads glyphs from that font.

In case of Danda character, it falls in the range of Devanagari script.So it
looks for a Devanagari font. If you have Hindi font installed it pulls the glyph
from it. If not, it does not look in any other fonts that may have these glyphs,
and thus shows a square box. Even though panjabi or bengali fonts have the
required glyph

Thus best way is, if no script supporting font is found, then find the glyph's
presence in either the font that is currently selected or any other font.Or I am
not sure if it is viable to have an exceptional case for the Danda and Double Danda.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-06-17 01:16:08 UTC
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008. 
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not 
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we 
are closing this bug. 

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version 
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

I checked this bug with Fedora Core 9, it is working correctly now. Resolution
is correct.

Comment 9 A S Alam 2010-01-20 04:49:43 UTC
