      Dear Manmathan and others,

      Further to my previous mails,

      The following are not bugs. Can some one deal with this records and remove
      them.

      Code2000 is working. This means Mozilla is working.

      Arial Unicode is not working with Mozilla. This means the Arial Unicode
      font that is used does not support Linux environment. Hence it is not a bug
      in Mozilla. It is not a bug in Arial unicode, because it does not support.

      Linear Unicode is displaying as designed. Hence, it is not a bug.

        Mozilla does not render tamil unicode correctly under Linux. The reordering and
        combining stuff does not work and it should be fixed.

        I have filed a new bug identifying this problem. Please vote for bug 204084.
