Yet another Hindi problem (3 posts)

    Hi there. I have the good old problem with broken Devanagari, if the text is justified. I know that it would help to make it left, not justified, but I don't want that and still the title appears broken.
    Heres the link to an example:

    The long link is also a problem, too.
    I'm using currently FireFox Strange thing is, that Opera 8.51 shows all correct and nice (by the way: the opera link to the example above looks like this: http://www.babbylon.de/wp/2006/03/26/यह-आख़िर-हिन्दी-हैं।/). Don't know how about the newest IE, but an older Version I have has still some problems.
    Anybody help? I want to let it look nice on all browsers

    OK. Some Themes make it possible to display Devanagari in the title correctly. Have to figure out why.
    But are there any other possibilities to do the same within an article without changing from justify to left?

    Display of broken hindi characters in Firefox when they are justified is a well documented problem. Please check this bug report


    The only way to make it work is to comment out "text-align: justify;", "word-spacing" or "letter-spacing" from one's stylesheet.

    Now about the Unicode chars in URL showing as a very long string is a problem that I havn't found a solution. If someone's knows an answer it would be great.
