It is high time that Mozilla supported Indian scripts via OpenType fonts and a suitable rendering engine. There are one billion people in India. I don't know if the Windows version of Mozilla already does this via Uniscribe, but we need this on Linux, too (and particularly on Linux if you think of the audience most of who can't afford expensive operating systems). Would it not be possible to have Linux Mozilla use the Pango layout rendering engine, especially now that Mozilla switched to GTK+ 2 anyway?
