Unicode Rendering for Gujarati is ALL wrong
Reported by, Feb 1 2013 Back to list
Chrome Version       : Android JB
URLs (if applicable) :
Other browsers tested:
Add OK or FAIL after other browsers where you have tested this issue:
     Native Browser on Android JB: OK

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Go to any Unicode Gujarati web page on Chrome and Browser
2. Notice correct Gujarati fonts on both
3. Notice screwed rendering order in Chrome. Browser is accurate!
4. for a comparison, go to a Unicode Hindi/Kannada/Telugu web page on Chrome and Browser
5. Notice correct fonts on both
6. Notice correct rendering order in BOTH browsers

What is the expected result?

Gujarati should be rendered readable. For example, Gujarati (and most Indian languages) should render "pra" as "pa+r" (correct) and "p+ra" (incorrect). Chrome does the latter.

What happens instead?

Indic languages change shapes based on rendering order. Once the order is disturbed, renders uncommon shapes and the document becomes "technically correct but completely unreadable". 

Actually, why doesn't Google make a common rendering machine for all Indic languages? That is 2+ bn people market in South and SE Asia!

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if
