Unicode Rendering engine on Linux (Uniscribe on Win Platform)
Posted on 2004-04-06
What is the status of unicode support in linux in general and specific support of urdu langauge.
In MS Windows, support is built in the OS itself; there is a uniscribe rendering engine and OpenType font and OTLS library that handles the rendering of unicode characters into appropriate glyphs.
Is there anything similiar available in linux platform. can it be developed?
what should be the overall picture or steps that one should take while getting it developed.
any help or insight will be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance
