Hi all,

I'm running webkitGtK (directfb backend) on a setop box.
It's working pretty well.

however when browsing the site http://www.sina.com.cn
I noticed a stange behaviour:

- while loading the site main page the chinse glyphs that have been
displayed are changing rapidly to other glyphs.
- after the page loading finished it seems OK, but when pointing the mouse
cursor to hyperlinks
  on the page the glyphs on that hyperlink change.
- moving the cursor far from that hyperlink the changed glyphs keep the new
modified symbols.

I was not able to reproduce this error on PC.

so I would be gratefull if someone can answer my questions:
- What methods  are called to change the color of the hyperlink when pointed
by the mouse ?
- can some one expalain to me how to write a test using GTK api to show
chinese text ?
  mabe the problem is not related to webkit.

PS: my config
- gtk+2.0 2.12.9
- cairo 1.8.10
- fontconfig 2.8.0
-directfb 1.4.3


Be to GOD as he wants ,
HE'll be for you more
than what you want.
