Bug Description

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UrduDocumentation
fails in Ubuntu on

Firefox Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20060921 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/1.5.0.7

We get boxes not characters, in some cases. This is a Ubuntu issue not generic firefox, as reports say it is okay on the bug 1 platform.

But not in galeon, which has other issues.
Galeon 2.0.1 soon to be reported. :)

Opera 9.01 displays the page correctly, however it replaces the trouble characters with generic, unstyled ones.

See http://www.meidomus.com/images/screencap/text-anomaly.gif for an example. The top half is from Opera, the bottom half is from Firefox.
