 Matthew Flaschen 2014-11-11 23:25:49 UTC Created attachment 17098 [details] Input fails to render with a lexing error The given example fails to render in PNG mode with a lexing error (can someone put this in plaintext in the bug report, so it's easier to reproduce?) Extracted out of bug 48032. Screenshot by praveenp. This, that and the other (TTO) 2014-11-12 04:09:01 UTC This is enough to see the bug: $ക$ This, that and the other (TTO) 2014-11-12 04:11:04 UTC The example in comment 1 gives the error "Failed to parse (lexing error): ക" This example: $\text{ക}$ gives a different message: "Failed to parse (PNG conversion failed; check for correct installation of latex and dvipng (or dvips + gs + convert)): {\text{ക}}" praveenp 2014-11-15 04:11:09 UTC This bug is not limited to Malayalam only. Examples: Tamil: $\text{ப}$, Hindi: $\text{ग}$ Matthew Flaschen 2014-11-15 05:01:19 UTC This particular bug report is limited to Malayalam. Those are not just different languages, but also different alphabets, meaning a fix for this bug (e.g. a new font) will not necessarily fix those. So if you want to track those other alphabets, please file separate reports. C. Scott Ananian 2014-11-15 05:13:08 UTC I don't think it's a font issue, I think it's a TeX validation issue. Does this bug occur with Mathoid enabled?
