           Summary: Malayalam non-atomic chillu glyph rendered incorrectly
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://sites.google.com/site/macmalayalam/

          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Text

script correctly on Mac OS X, we should support the font even if it means using
