I downloaded the firefox source code from Mozilla.org's site and compiled it with xft support. Now I have a browser with lovely anti-aliased fonts but without international character support. When I go to a site such as www.haaretz.co.il,
I get a bunch of squares with numbers in them.
I can get these fonts when I use the non-xft binary supplied by Mozilla.org, but then the fonts aren't anti-aliased.
Is it possible to have both anti-aliasing and international fonts? I suspect the answer is that I need to download some international ttf fonts. Where can I get those?
Here's how I installed firefox if it is important:
export MOZILLA_OFFICIAL="1" &&
export BUILD_OFFICIAL="1" &&
export MOZ_PHOENIX="1" &&
./configure --prefix=/opt/firefox-0.8 \
--with-x --with-system-zlib \
--with-system-jpeg --with-system-png --with-system-mng \
--enable-xft --enable-crypto \
--disable-tests --disable-debug \
--disable-logging --enable-reorder \
--enable-strip --disable-pedantic \
--enable-cpp-rtti --enable-extensions=all \
--disable-calendar --disable-mailnews &&
make install &&
ln -sf /opt/firefox-0.8/bin/firefox /usr/bin/MozillaFirefox
