indic language in some places (for example the second word in the wikipedia
article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamil_language) does not render correctly
in any skin when i'm logged in.
on the same page, other words in indic scripts do render correctly (like the
links to other wikipedias)
strangely, the same thing renders correctly when you are logged out,
irrespective of skin (i checked others using ?useskin=)
by the way, i'm using firefox 2.0 on a windows xp machine and accessing the net
through a Squid proxy server.
Can you provide screenshots (logged out/in) please? At least I am not familiar
with the indic language to see what is broken. Thank you.

I cannot confirm the problem on my PC (WinXP with FF 22.214.171.124). The generated
HTML sourcecode is the same for logged in/out users:
(<a href="/wiki/Tamil_language" title="Tamil language">Tamil</a>: <span
I have tested also, cannot confirm the problem on my PC (IE7 on WinXP and FF 126.96.36.199
on WinXP). The text rendered are the same.
I have also tested in the Linux platform (using Firefox 188.8.131.52 on Fedora 6),
and the text rendered are the same. Please check that you have updated with
latest updates for the software, especially the font and xorg updates.
Since there's no someone else have the same problem that reproduced using
different environment and settings, I have marked as WORKSFORME for this, please
reopen this bug when the same problem exists in different environments.
The HTML is identical, so it could be an issue with the HTTP headers (perhaps
Content-Encoding?) being modified by the proxy server. I was not able to check
what headers reach me when I'm logged in.
The proxy server on my network is squid/2.6.STABLE5. I don't have access to the
Could you please check if MediaWiki is sending the same HTTP headers when the
user is logged in?
