>From your description, the Firefox that you are using is probably not
Indic-enabled. Mozilla, and Firefox can handle Indic text quite well,
but need to be specially compiled with support for Pango or for the
m17n library. Which version of Firefox, and what distribution are you
using? I believe that the Firefox in Ubuntu Breezy is Indic-enabled,
that was not the case earlier.
