Jay, I assume you have the necessary fonts installed?

OpenVMS bug. I'll take it.

Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
DECwindows for OpenVMS does NOT come with Arabic and Georgian fonts. So the correct answer is "this is a limitation in our DECwindows product". I searched the web and found some X font files which supposedly contained both Arabic and Georgian fonts. I downloaded these and after playing around a while figured out how to "install" them on OpenVMS. After doing this, I could go to the smoketest page and see Arabic and Georgian text. If you want to give it a try, here's what I did. go to http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs-fonts.html and download the "-misc-fixed-*" font package: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/download/ucs-fonts.tar.gz Unzip and untar the BDF (bitmap distribution font) files into a temporary directory somewhere: $ gzip -d UCS-FONTS_TAR.GZ $ tar -xvf UCS-FONTS_TAR. *.bdf Convert the BDF files into PCF font files that DECwindows understand: $ font 10X20.BDF $ font 4X6.BDF $ font 5X7.BDF $ font 5X8.BDF $ font 6X10.BDF $ font 6X12.BDF $ font 6X13.BDF $ font 6X13B.BDF $ font 6X13O.BDF $ font 6X9.BDF $ font 7X13.BDF $ font 7X13B.BDF $ font 7X13O.BDF $ font 7X14.BDF $ font 7X14B.BDF $ font 8X13.BDF $ font 8X13B.BDF $ font 8X13O.BDF $ font 9X15.BDF $ font 9X15B.BDF $ font 9X18.BDF $ font 9X18B.BDF $ font CLR6X12.BDF $ font HELVR12.BDF Decide where you want to "install" the new fonts to. I used SYS$COMMON:[SYSFONT.DECW.USER_COMMON]. Then copy the PCF files there and run FONT/DIR to create a new DECW$FONT_DIRECTORY.DAT file: $ copy /log *.pcf SYS$COMMON:[SYSFONT.DECW.USER_COMMON] $ font /dir SYS$COMMON:[SYSFONT.DECW.USER_COMMON] Log out of DECwindows and start a new DECwindows session. You should now have Arabic and Georgian fonts (thought I noticed not all size/weights of the Arabic font were present; this must be because they were not in the original BDF files). Colin. PS: gzip and tar are not standard VMS utilities. If you don't already have them, ask around (or I can send you images).

Jay Farrell, could you verify this since we do not have the right environment?

Colin, I just assumed these would ship and install with the latest Rev 1.0 RC2, but I still see the problem. (I have not attempted the download of those files) Should these ship by default, or are they "download on demand"? OpenVMS 20020513
No, fonts are not a part of Mozilla. Font ship with the GUI, MOTIF (DECwindows) in this case, and MOTIF V1.2 on OpenVMS did not ship Arabic and Georgian fonts. This is not a Mozilla problem. What part of my reply made you think that the fonts would ship with Mozilla? For what its worth, I hear that the upcoming MOTIF 1.3 release on OpenVMS does ship with more fonts.
my bad. I assumed that since this was "resolved fixed" that it meant that these files would/could be shipped with mozilla. After re-reading your entry, I see your point. Sorry about that.
