If I have understood correctly dynamic fonts are used with CSS to show some nonstandard fonts on webpage.

But if Firefox or Konqueror doesn´t support that feature, there isn't probably nothing better choice out there. Everything standarded and common behaviour should be implemented in those two.

Ok it seems there is no bengla- bengali font in suse.. So you have to download and configure it...
looking for a guide...

There may be a fonts-package somewhere on suse cds/dvd which includes the font, but atleast I couldn't find one.

Searched the net but i havent found a suse 10 package anywhere, this packege is for suse 9.2 but it can be installed on 9.3 or 10. I tried it and it works.

The solution is here:

1) open a console

2) switch to root with command "su" and type password

3) download package with wget :
4) install it:
Code:
yast -i fonts-bangla-0.20040805-3.noarch.rpm
5) run suseconfig
Code:
SuSEconfig
6) restart firefox if in use and close console

7) surf to site where that font is used

8) enjoy your new font in action!
