Hi, I am using AWB in ml.wikipedia. The Find & Replace option is not displaying Unicode characters. Edit box is working fine. If Someone can add this functionality in next update will be appreciated.

There are lots of them that don't display on different machines (especially running XP, I suppose). The problem is that there is no standard Unicode font that every user has. Arial Unicode MS comes only with M$ Office (and is too wide to be simply used w/o other changes). Other variants are even less standard. Also, many of them are not suitable to be used in interface, cf Code2000.

I believe AnjaliOldLipi is the most popular font in Malayalam.


Here is the AWB screenshot from a win2k system. In XP, it works fine. If there is an option for adjusting font size will be appreciated. Some characters are difficult to read.

I want to move this to a "Bug-board" and remove this from F.R., @Reedy?
