    Dear All,

    Glad to have found a free font providing a complete set
    of combining marks and precomposed latin, and even
    IPA characters:


    But testing it with AbiWord (2.0.1) on W2K
    was disappointing. It seems that combining marks
    only produce troubles (cursor movement not matching
    display) and it seems that it is not really possible
    to use them in AbiWord.

    That tempted me into testing Thai, which has combining
    vowels, tone marks and all the fun stuff. Gives the
    same and even more dramatic misbehaviour (tested
    with Code 2000 font).

    Are only we Win32-sufferers affected and you can use
    AbiWord for Thai on Linux?

    Best Regards,
    Peter Jacobi

    B.T.W.: Thanks again to all who helped me with
    Unicode character entry. After further searching
    I'm now using (via cut+paste):
