Topic: Tibetan characters

One of our users has come across a problem when using Tibetan characters. It seems that sometimes Tibetan syllables don't stack correctly.  For example, these syllables [img=incorrect rendering]http://www.personal-lexicon.com/forum/img/kailasa.png[/img] should stack like this [img=correct rendering]http://www.personal-lexicon.com/forum/img/machineUni.png[/img].

After doing some research I've found that this is caused by a strange quirk with the font Kailasa when used in Java applications.  To remedy this you can disable Kailasa in the OS.  For Mac users, you'll need to run the Font Book application, right-click on the font name, and select the disable option. In Windows you'll have to actually delete or move the font out of the Font folder, found in the Control Panel.

Once this is done then a new default font will automatically be used for Tibetan characters that will render correctly. Note that in a future release, Personal Lexicon will allow you the change the font within the program.

Hope this helps.
