Description openoffice 2005-01-11 14:55:52 UTC
This is a follow-on bug to issue #i31168#. Surrogate characters do not display,
even with proper fonts and platform available. See #i31168# for a sample file
(UTF8 file) + font (Code2001).

dvo: According to several people (submitter of 31168, Eric (QA) and I saw it)
this used to work (SRC680 m65-ish), but does not seem to work in current builds
anymore (680m72; m69 according to submitter).

dvo: On re-reading issue 31168: According to reinerg61, this also worked in OOo
1.1.4. He wrote additional info into that issue on details.

Seems to be introduced by the workaround against XP SP2's automatic ligatures in
issue 27336, which got integrated in 680m64.

please have a look at issue 45983 as well. This is a similar problem on linux,
but without the surrogate-part (but I'm not sure what a surrogate-character
should be, so maybe these two are the same).

In CWS vcl69 a crash when working with surrogate pairs on WIN platforms was
fixed (#138843#). With the fix the display of surrogate pairs on WIN works.
Since CWS vcl69 got into SRC680_m196 it will be in OOo 2.2

So the most approriate status for this issue is WORKSFORME then.

Hi Hubert,
Does this issue depend on Windows version?
I've tried SRC680m9 with HG 明朝L Sun on XP and 2000, and
found m9 works fine on XP, but not on 2000 (it does not show surrogate pair glyphs).
Could you please clarify system requirement for this, if there are any?

Confirming that OOo on Win2K has display problems with unicode surrogate pairs.
I submitted issue 75450 for the Win2K specific aspect, since this issue is
already overloaded (it started as "problem on all platforms" to "windows all"
and now to win2K and older).
