Can you post a specific link to a website with Malayalam script that gives problems?

http://ml.wikipedia.org/wiki/സഹായം:To_Read_in_Malayalam

Question owner

followed the direction suggested by Wikipedia, but not worthily. May be the source site problem.

The mangalam.com site tries to download an EOT font and that doesn't work in Firefox.
There is no local font specified as a fall back.

There is also a font linked to a local file, so it looks that they didn't take other browsers and platform into account.

  • src: url(file:///D:\Public\suneeth\Mangalam\test\MEERA0.eot);

I've you've downloaded and installed the font locally then there needs be a src: local(font_file); rule.

The site works for me though.
