PDF rendering failure: "Package polyglossia Error: The current roman font does not contain the Ethiop"
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Initially came to my attention from OTRS (Ticket: 2015090210026166)

  1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethiopia (Firefox 40.0.3)
  2. Print/Export --> "Download as PDF"
  3. Wait until 100%

Expected: PDF renders and is available for download
Actual: Error (as below)

Error message: "Status: ! Package polyglossia Error: The current roman font does not contain the Ethiop"
