not using big5hkscs font in displaying glyphs
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020918 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020918 I've installed a big5-hkscs font on my linux box, but mozilla doesn't seem to use it to display the hkscs code range. It seems to show glyphs from various font sources instead. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. use linux version of mozilla 2. visit http://cs-people.bu.edu/butta1/personal/hkscs/hkscs-oct.html Actual Results: shows inconsistent or wrong glyph styles.. it couldn't detect big-hkscs pcf font, which you can download from http://cs-people.bu.edu/butta1/personal/hkscs/ Expected Results: Maybe it should use the big5-hkscs font first if it exist, and then fall back to other fonts that can display hkscs code range.
It does as long as your PCF fonts have 'big5hkscs-0' as XLFD registry-encoding pairs. Make aliases if your fonts don't. With that change, Mozilla should pick up glyphs from them. See bug 226183 comment #25.

jshin: Questions: 1. Where can I download "ming_uni.ttf" from ? 2. Can the font be freely distributed as part of a mozdev.org project ?
I've updated the fonts at http://cs-people.bu.edu/butta1/personal/hkscs/ with big5hkscs-0 encoding as you suggested.
