 Malayalam: It is observed that some characters are missing in pages containing Malayalam content, moreover a space is being shown  wherever such character exists. While on Win>IE they are being rendered correctly.
   (Similiar issue is seen in Win>Firefox3, but special characters are seen here)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch the  Gran Paradiso browser.
2. Load the sites deepika.com and gujaratsamachar.com
3. Make sure that the ttf fonts that can be downloaded from the respective sites are properly installed.

Actual Results:  
It is observed that in the site deepika.com, some malayalam characters are missing, and they are being rendered as a space. While in the site gujaratsamachar.com, many characters are seen missing. (This is as seen in Linux, in Windows we see special chartecters instead of these characters).


Expected Results:

Do you still see the same problems in 3.0a3, or a current nightly build?
