Hi Yoshiki!

I tried this with the Squeak that I have (Squeakland VM + Etoys 2.3
image) with the Nepali font installed
(http://nepalinux.org/fonts/samanata.ttf) and when I loaded the front
page of Nepali wikipedia into a TextMorph I see only question-marks.

Is that expected -- are you using an experimental Pango'ized version?
If so is there some way I could use it too, preferably on all of
Linux/Windows/Mac? :-)

I'd really like a way to import Nepali text into Squeak today or
tomorrow -- we have two demos to do this week (one to government, one
to a school) and we'll have to import the text as bitmaps again if we
don't grok Squeak/unicode/fonts really soon.

I would also really appreciate a workaround to bug #4604 -- that
TextMorphs lose their font selection (of a non-unicode Devanagari
font) during project loading. I'm contemplating a cheezy hack with a
TextMorph subclass that hardcodes its font to Devanagari in
