Description Ed Graham 2008-06-13 14:57:16 UTC
No biggie: I just thought I'd point out that, in the left-hand nav under "languages", the word for "Hindi" is not correctly spelt.  If it's just on this page, that's obviously no problem; if it's throughout the site, however, you might want to fix it.  I will happily do this for you if plausible and you don't have access to another IT-literate person who can read the Devanagri script (in which Hindi is written).
Comment 1 Chad H. 2008-06-15 15:05:04 UTC
Is this a problem with a particular article, or the spelling of "Hindi" on all of the language link boxes?
Comment 2 Ed Graham 2008-06-17 08:32:08 UTC
It is everywhere as far as I can see -- the main Hindi page ( has the same misspelling throughout.  *However*, I have just noticed that the spelling comes out correctly in IE7!  Take a look at the first "word" at the top-left in the centre-nav (first tab), in bold, black font; in IE7, you'll see that it is different than in Firefox 2 and Opera 9.  The IE7 spelling is correct.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-07-04 23:39:25 UTC
Unfortunately, this is still a widespread problem with the desktop software & operating systems -- lots of things don't correctly handle rendering of Indic scripts.

Check Firefox 3 and report it at if it persists in Firefox;
check Opera 9.5 and report the problem at if it persists there.
