Hello, I have I little problem with some fonts on snow leopard/lion.
I am trying to use the egyptian hieroglyphs (unicode slot: U+13000 - U+1342F), but it seems they don't work on leopard.
I have installed the font "gardiner" (you can find it in this website: http://users.teilar.gr/~g1951d/ and directly download it from here: http://users.teilar.gr/~g1951d/Gardiner313.zip ) and in fact I can see the characters in the character palette, but when I open a file, or I run an application using this set of characters, my computer does not recognize them, and it shows only the classical series of black squares.
As for instance, I cannot see any hieroglyph in this test page http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/egyptian-hieroglyphs.html , or in this page of wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptian_hieroglyphs#Unicode , even though my font is correctly installed.
I tried it on lion, and it didn't work too. Curiously, it worked well on tiger.
What is the problem? It is a problem with the font? Or for some reason apple is not able to deal correctly with this unicode slot?
thanks in advance
