The Mangal font displays some strange behavior in OO 2.0.2. 

When you make a link (for example an e-mail address) and you hit the Enter key,
the underline is longer than the link itself (see 1.PNG).

The line underneath the link (This is a test. @) shows the cursor. This cursor
is positioned way too far to the right as there was no space-key hit between the
@ and the cursor.

Sometimes the cursor is even on the left side from where one is typing, although
I could not reproduce this bug for the screenshot.

This behavior is present on three different machines of mine, all with the
default setup on Windows XP SP2 + Java JRE 1.5.0_06.

ES->HDU: as described.

The rendering of underline is defect for Mangal. To reproduce:
- type "dt", press F3 (dummy text)
- format as underlined and use Magal
-> you should see lines randomly painted from the middle of the text throughout
the outter right margin.

Same thing in OOo 2.0.0
Wordpad has no rendering problem with this font

Strange indeed, but no time to analyze this in this month.
Comment 8 box 2006-09-13 09:36:35 UTC

This bug also exists in OO 2.0.3. Can this bug be fixed in the next release? It
still bugs me a lot.


Comment 9 box 2006-10-16 11:46:01 UTC
This bug still exists in OO 2.0.4.

Since the Hindi font "Mangal" doesn't support Latin characters any problem 
that results from using Mangal to write latin text is not exactly high 
priority... of course it is a defect though and we'll fix the issue.

But please use a font that supports Latin script for text consisting of mostly 
latin characters.
