Diacritics / Vowel Marks

leave a comment »

EDIT: This problem has been “magically resolved” with my upgrade to Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) / firefox 2.0.0.12.

Looking at the previous post I noticed that my favourite browser Firefox (2.0.0.11 on Ubuntu) does not display the diacritics vowel marks correctly. They are not above the letters but slightly to the side, and some of the connections break as well. The font that should be used is “Georgia”, which displays fine in other editors such as Open Office Writer and Kate. I haven’t checked for other browsers yet.

The only “solution” I’ve been able to find so far is to set the font to the general “sans-serif” setting… not exactly what I’m looking for.
