I am using the following browser with this setup : Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020 Firefox/0.10.1 I noticed that following webpage is not at all intelligible / garbages with this browser while they show up correctly with IE6. This is a bengali newspapers. http://www.bhorerkagoj.net/online/day.php?id=85&sys=0 However, I found the follwing webpages display correctly with the same browser while those are also bengali sites. http://www.ajkerkagoj.com/2005/Nov08/1st_page.html http://www.forms.gov.bd/ http://www.jugantor.com/demo/index.php On the same machine with Windows XP (SP2) and following browser, I have noticed the same performance : Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7 However, all these webpages show up correctly once those are viewed with IE.Even installing new fonts stated in the source didnot result anything differant with Firefox.I have tried changing Character encoding to Autodetect but could not really determine which one to select. In IE I dont have to select anything other than Selecting Encoding -> Auto-Select. I think this may be introduced in the Firefox browser. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: It reproduces everytime. I have put details of it in the description I think you can also make it. Actual Results: Show garbages. Expected Results: Bengali webpages. See Comment#1 of Bug 315595.

It says on the website that the browser I use doesn't support the loading of dynamic fonts and I need to install http://www.bhorerkagoj.net/online/font_dl_95.php Once I had done installed the page displayed correctly.
Reporter, an encoding is not the same as a font. This website uses dynamic fonts to install a font with the desired character *without* changing the encoding. This is very old-fashioned, and not standard compliant. And we don't support dynamic fonts at this moment: see bug 52746.
