There needs to be a higher level protocol to shape and position glyphs
before things are sent to SVG. Complex script languages cannot be
handled by simply sending Unicode strings of characters.

Subject: Rendering of Svg Font 


 

In SVG document the font is rendered in logical order but in Malayalam
(an indic language) the rendering of some character are different from
it's logical order.

For eg:-

1.	Malayalam letter KA (0D15) + Malayalam Vowel sign E (0D46) has
to be  rendered as Malayalam Vowel sign E (0D46) + Malayalam letter KA
(0D15)

 

2.	Malayalam letter KA (0D15) + Malayalam Vowel sign O (0D4A) has
to be  rendered as Malayalam Vowel sign E (0D46) + Malayalam letter KA
(0D15)+ Malayalam Vowel sign AA (0D46) etc.. 

Can anyone suggest any method to introduce correct rendering to such
combinations? 

 

Best regards

Jose Stephen
