            Bug ID: 149043
           Summary: Noncanonical Devanagari rendered poorly
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 8
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Text
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
          Reporter: kamholz at panlex.org

Safari 8 incorrectly renders "<p>&#x093f;&#x0938;</p>" by incorrectly placing "&#x0938;" in the right margin. The issue seems to be that these Devanagari characters are encoded in visual order rather than logical order. The canonical, logical order of "&#x0938;&#x093f;" renders correctly. However, the visual order is sometimes used, especially by people less familiar with the prescribed logical order of Devanagari characters in Unicode. The visual order, though in some sense "wrong", should therefore not fail so spectacularly. This case was, in fact, handled more gracefully in Safari 7; the issue seems to have been introduced in Safari 8.
