I can't read it, of course, but it doesn't appear malformed as you described. I've attached a screenshot so you can see how I saw it. On my FC7 system I installed just about all the fonts that were available, because I got tired of seeing boxes and numbers in webpages instead of the proper font glyphs. I think pages look better as they're meant to be, even if I can't read the language. Perhaps it's just the particular font that you're using that has a problem. -- [[email protected] ~]$ uname -ipr 188.8.131.52-10.fc7 i686 i386 Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5. Today, it's FC7.
