Hello Alexey, Darin and all
Thank you for your replies. I tested the iphone with different fonts
that i checked using fontforge. The fonts have both Gsub and Gpos tables
_the problem is that:_
Iphone doesn't load the Gsub table from the font file. It keeps on using
the isolated form for each letter.
Accordingly i though to embed the sub tables to be hardcoded in the webcore.
any comments would be appreciated.
