hi ronlau9

My friend i did that
when i selected ->choose there are 3 languages named

Punjabi [Indian]
Punjabi [pak]
Punjabi [pa]

and more is English [US]. I moved all three Punjabi to top of English as the option was available to move them up.

But still the problem is same// I cant view it proprerly

One thing is worthwhile to say

Some of the lines are OK e.g. Name of Newspaper i am able to read
some other stuff like advertisements few of them i am able to read properply
why it is like that

Please reply

Thanks

To view the Indian language web sites, you need to download the fonts from the respective sites( look for something like "Font Problem/Help" link).

Download those fonts to your ~/.fonts folder (create if it does not exist) and run "fc-cache". Restart your browser and visit the site.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
